"UW Stout Online enthusiastically continues its contributions to the overall growth and success of the greater UW-Stout community. We currently offer 15 undergraduate degree programs, 15 graduate degree programs and 27 certificates and certifications, supported through Stout Online. Our team works diligently to support the faculty, staff, and students in these customized instruction programs.

Our distance students are an amazing group of individuals who are pursuing education away from the traditional setting. This year, the Stout Online student body is made up of 1,022 undergraduate and 1,012 graduate students, including both degree and non-degree seeking individuals, attending either full or part time.

Faculty and instructional academic staff also continue to enhance their programs, curriculum, and instruction to meet the needs of this population, as well. This helps to ensure the UW Stout experience, regardless of modality.

We want to take this time during National Distance Learning Week to recognize our distance learners and thank the faculty and staff who have extended the reach of our programs to students who otherwise would not have access to a UW-Stout education!  Your hard work and perseverance are appreciated!"

- Dr. Amy Gullixson / Associate Director / UW-Stout Online

  • Distance Learning & Technology Resources for Telehealth, 12:00 – 1:00pm CST
  • Resource Highlight
      • The Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center (NTLC) has launched its ETCetera: Educational Training Content modules. Each of these electronic modules was developed by a content expert and in most cases, includes 2 to 6 short supportive videos created by faculty representing a broad range of disciplines and teaching strategies. You will see that their enthusiasm for teaching is infectious! The 12 topics cover timely teaching issues and are designed to inspire and inform both new and seasoned faculty alike. The modules include reflective exercises and additional resources and are connected to a badge and certificate program.

        Over 50 faculty participated in this project and technical design support was provided by UW-Stout Online, while funding came from the Chancellor's Fund for Teaching Excellence and Student Success and NTLC. The modules are housed on UW-Stout’s LMS so to access them, contact Renee Howarton, NTLC Director, at
