In an age where full-length movies can be streamed directly to a phone the size of a deck of cards, online classes might not seem as cutting-edge as they once did. To keep up with the current times, MSU is continuing to advance its online course offerings for students. Today, MSU serves more than 5,000 undergraduate students taking online courses, with another 1,800 students pursuing graduate degrees or individual graduate courses online. “One of the primary benefits would be giving access to students that wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity to pursue a degree,” said Brendan Guenther, director of MSU’s virtual university design and technology. MSU’s online course offerings have grown tremendously since the first online class was offered in 1996, Guenther said.
