How do Franciscan Online courses work?

Powered by Blackboard, the market leader in Online Learning Management Systems, our online courses feature interactive tools that function as a virtual classroom. You will collaborate with professors, other class members, and study partners.

Check out a sample course on our Blackboard site.

Weekly course content includes recorded, professional lectures from our expert professors—the same ones who teach on campus here in Steubenville—as well as guest speakers. Also, live webinars, wikis, podcasts and vodcasts, video/audio emails, blogs, and other tools facilitate one-on-one interaction with professors and fellow students on the material being discussed.

And, of course, dedicated technical and academic support is always a phone call away to answer any questions not covered in the comprehensive Online Orientation Course designed to prepare students for this online educational experience.

Franciscan’s Online Programs are Fully Accredited

Operating with the approval of the Ohio Department of Higher Education, Franciscan online courses and programs adhere to the same rigorous academic standards as Franciscan University’s campus-based courses and programs. The University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
