Our program is fully accredited by NCATE and KSDE. Even though courses meet on campus, our instructors often enhance their lessons with podcasts, vodcasts, social networking, wikis, and other electronic delivery technology.  Students may also engage in real-time webcasts with instructors throughout the program using virtual collaboration tools like Adobe Connect, allowing for asynchronized and synchronized learning each week.
