How eLearning Works
Massachusetts Library members take courses online and
have access to professors, lectures, exams, and classmates using a
standard computer connected to the Internet. Interaction among
classmates and instructors is done through email and web-based threaded
discussions and students can take classes when and where they want; all
materials are available online 24/7.
Drexel’s College of Information Science and
Technology, the newly named iSchool at Drexel, is a founding member of
the iSchool Consortium. This Consortium consists of multiple colleges
and schools within universities that focus on problems and domains
emphasizing the intersections between people, information and
technology. This cooperative initiative is underway by 25 iSchools
nationally to brand the information science and technology field.
Drexel, which offers the second largest program in the country, was also
ranked 9th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for their MS
in Library and Information Science graduate degree.
