About Columbia Online

Columbia Online is Columbia University‘s central resource for students, faculty, alumni and staff to access online courses, programs, initiatives and tools.  It is also the hub for sharing best practices in leveraging online and digital technologies to enhance teaching and learning.

“Columbia schools and faculty have developed pioneering programs and initiatives in the field of online learning over many years. These activities have now matured to the point where each of them, and the University as a whole, would benefit from a higher level of institutional focus and coordination.

Through our online initiative, we aim to share knowledge and deploy new tools and technologies in interactive and distance learning to ensure the richest and most dynamic educational environment possible for Columbia’s students, as well as learners outside the University.”
