The University of Missouri System Office of eLearning serves the four UM System universities with resources for developing and administering online courses and programs. It also provides state-of-the-art technology platforms to support digital learning. 

Through Missouri Online, we increase access to a four-university network of accredited, highly ranked and outcomes-oriented online educational offerings. Your academic unit can partner with us to deliver outstanding distance education to online learners.

Growing online programs?

As online learning evolves, we are dedicated to remaining a leader in academic innovation. No two learning experiences are the same and with eLearning, we have the opportunity to serve more students than ever before. With collaboration and advances in technology, programs have the ability to optimize their eLearning capabilities and build upon them. As part of its strategic plan, the UM System has made resources available for campuses to collaborate and expand eLearning through the Online Program Scaling Process.
