Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education
This report highlights distance delivery courses in Nebraska for the academic years 2004-2005 and 2005-2006. All six community colleges, the three state colleges, and the University of Nebraska campuses offer courses at distance; more than 40 degrees, endorsements and certificates are now offered completely by distance technology. The total number of students served by some form of distance education was 92,272 in 2004-2005 and 116,584 in 2005-2006. Three types of off-campus/distance education are includes: (1) traditional delivery; (2) synchronous delivery; and (3) asynchronous delivery. Since first collection of this information in the early 1990s, asynchronous sources have steadily increased, and now surpass both synchronous and traditionally-delivered courses. Almost every type of course is offered at distance, including courses requiring hands-on activities. Most asynchronous courses are available anywhere a student has access to a computer, including his or her home or work place; most synchronous courses require a location capable of receiving a live transmission from the campus.
