Established in 1976, the University of Phoenix has quickly grown to becoming one of the largest private universities in North America. The institution enrolls students at more than 200 locations, as well as through online programs that are available in most countries across the world. The Online Campus is one of many campuses provided by the University of Phoenix. It is unique because all classes are conducted via the Internet including most programs offered at campus locations throughout the United States and Canada.
The Online Campus is a result of the University’s acknowledgment of the technological transformation of the workplace, and the needs of working adult student. Rather than meeting in a traditional classroom, students and instructors interact via Internet and asynchronously, resulting in an increased access for students by allowing them to manage time and place of their involvement.
