Program celebrates National Distance Learning Week

Posted: November 5, 2012

During National Distance Learning Week, the Community and Economic Development Graduate Program will promote and celebrate distance and online education programs with online activities for students.

Annually in November, organizations and institutions throughout the United States recognize distance learning during National Distance Learning Week (NDLW). Originally sponsored by the United States Distance Learning Association, the week brings attention to the growth and accomplishment of distance learning, including online learning.

In celebration of NDLW during November 5-9, CEDEV students can participate in the following activities:

CEDEV students around the World!

CEDEV graduate students are studying all across North America and in several countries, including Egypt and Kenya. Students, can you find your location on the map?


Where do you study CEDEV? Photo Contest

Do you study at a local coffee shop, your kitchen table, city park, or does it vary depending on the day?! Participate in our photo contest to show us where you study. Take a photo of yourself studying in your favorite location, wherever that may be, and submit to us at by 5 pm ET on 11/9. One lucky CEDEV student or alum will be randomly selected to win a prize. (To be eligible for the prize, participants must be a current CEDEV student or alumni of the program.)
