San Jose Establishes Global e-Campus for M.L.I.S.

The San Jose School of Library and Information Science (http://slisweb.sjsu.edu) has announced the Global e-Campus for Library and Information Science. Beginning in fall 2009, the school will complete the move to a fully online delivery for the 43-credit Master of Library and Information Science (M.L.I.S.) degree, joining the Master of Archives and Records Administration degree. Governance and administration have similarly moved to increased use of web-conferencing and other information and communication technologies.

For more than 50 years the school has been an early adopter of distance learning technology, including closed-circuit television and interactive videoconferencing. Today, students benefit from high-quality synchronous and asynchronous instruction and networking opportunities, choosing from more than 250 courses a semester and interacting with peers and instructors through web conferencing, social networking platforms, a web-based learning management system, and immersive environments. These technologies provide a rich learning environment and better prepare students to apply technology in their professional lives. San Jose's students live in 45 states and 14 countries, and full- and part-time faculty live on three continents. The new virtual nature of the program and its administrative infrastructure allows the school to recruit top faculty, regardless of where they live. Clear expectations for faculty and students, small classes, and continual high investment in advanced distance learning technologies contribute to academic and professional success.
