In-House Quality

In 2001, Stern became the first business school to establish its own center for exploring new models in teaching and learning. The NYU Stern Learning Science Lab is a team of creatives, educators, designers, and technologists who work closely with faculty to create engaging and interactive courses. Leveraging the resources of Stern and NYU at large, the team applies their expertise in user experience design, learning science, and video production to build immersive digital learning environments for business school education.

Online Learning Terminology

The term "asynchronous" refers to courses or course elements that can be completed at any time within the parameters of the course schedule. Asynchronous activities are things you do independently, like watch videos and complete assignments, and interactions with others over time via email, discussion forums, collaborative documents, and other channels.

The term "synchronous" refers to learning with others in real time using videoconferencing and other technologies.

Our online certificate courses are asynchronous with optional synchronous elements.
