Online Learning Overview

Online Delivery

Online classes offer both flexibility and convenience. William Woods University’s online courses are delivered via the Moodle Learning Management System. Moodle was selected as our learning management system as it is designed for online course delivery. Moodle’s flexibility and ease of use make it one of the most customer friendly learning management systems available. When you have questions, free 24-hour chat support is provided for to you.


William Woods University’s online classes follow the University’s standard academic year schedule of three semesters. Each semester offers two class start sessions. You can remain continuously enrolled across the calendar year.

Online classes are typically eight weeks long. You can customize your schedule around your personal and professional lives. Work with your academic advisor to develop a personalized degree plan. Because each student’s needs as well as degree completion goals are different, degree plans will often vary.
