Office of Online Education


Our mission is to empower faculty to combine engaging teaching and learning strategies with technology, enabling students to achieve academic goals and prepare for the future.


The Office of Online Education aspires to actively contribute to the evolution of online teaching and learning at UNLV.

Be an Online Rebel

UNLV recognizes that the traditional classroom environment doesn't work for everyone. Today’s Rebels need flexibility, convenience, and accessibility. Taking fully online and hybrid classes allows students to work toward their degree whenever and wherever works best for them.
