Stanford University offers online classes at the graduate level. Some departments allow fully online degree programs, while others have a few on-campus requirements. The requirements for the degree are determined by the department. The online classes are regular university classes where the lectures have been videotaped and streamed over the Internet. The rest of the materials are delivered to the remote student via any number of suitable means. The remote student is required to do the same work and must complete all assignments and exams at the same time as the rest of the class. In essence, the major classroom difference between on-campus students and remote students is the method of delivery for the lectures.
