Colorado is definitely tech-savvy when it comes to education. From being home to Colorado State University-Global Campus, one of the few 100% online public universities in the U.S., to giving online community college students a chance to work in remote science labs, Colorado is keeping up with trends and embracing innovation in higher education. Colorado is also making waves in the K-12 education arena thanks to schools like the online, public Colorado Virtual Academy.

Higher Learning Initiatives

Colorado State University-Global Campus

One of the most affordable online schools in Colorado, Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSU-Global) has been helping nontraditional undergraduate and graduate students reach their academic goals since 2007. CSU-Global offers 10 different bachelor’s degree programs and five different master’s degree programs. Each of the degree programs offered at CSU-Global is designed to equip students with the skills they need to launch new, challenging careers once they graduate. More than 1,000 students have graduated from this innovative online university, and more than 5,000 students are currently enrolled at CSU-Global.

North American Network of Science Labs Online (NANSLO)

The Colorado School of Mines and all of the community colleges in Colorado participate in the North American Network of Science Labs Online (NANSLO). NANSLO is an initiative created by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) that allows students of Colorado online colleges to remotely control instruments inside real science labs and participate in live science experiments right from their computers. Most of the community colleges in Colorado offer online courses in science, and NANSLO allows those students to get hands-on, online lab experience to make what they’re learning truly come to life. NANSLO uses robotics, video, and audio technology to make its incredible remote labs possible.

Colorado Virtual Academy

Colorado Virtual Academy is one of the few U.S. public schools that delivers curriculum to K-12 students online. Using technology and pedagogical materials designed by K12, an online education company, Colorado Virtual Academy educates students using online lectures, textbooks, CDs, and individualized learning plans that are created by certified Colorado teachers. Parents work with K-8 students to help guide them through their classes. High school students at Colorado Virtual Academy work independently and with their teachers and parents to prepare for college and beyond.
