Exceptional Online Learning
As an online learner at NYU Stern, you benefit not only from the highest standards of academic excellence, but also from uncompromising standards for online course design.
“We realized early on that the only way to meet our quality benchmarks was to build the capacity to develop high quality learning experiences in-house.”
In 2001, Stern became the first business school to establish its own center for exploring new models in teaching and learning. The NYU Stern Learning Science Lab is a team of creatives, educators, designers, and technologists who work closely with faculty to create engaging and interactive courses. Leveraging the resources of Stern and the University at large, the team applies their expertise in user experience design, learning science, and video production to build immersive digital learning environments for business school education.
“We pay close attention to the way we use multimedia to enhance learning. And we use the power of great illustration and animation, combined with relevant interactive activities, to help students gain deep understanding of complex ideas.”
Online Learning Terminology
The term “asynchronous” refers to courses or course elements that can be completed at any time within the parameters of the course schedule. Asynchronous activities may be things you do independently, like watching videos and completing assignments, or they may be interactions with others over time via email, discussion forums, collaborative documents, and other channels.
The term “synchronous” refers to the online meetups that involve learning with others in real time, using videoconferencing and other technologies.
MSQM online courses are asynchronous with optional synchronous elements.
