The Digital Campus. The Digital
Campus aims to serve students from all walks of life by providing
choices in learning styles to meet the changing needs of our society.
In addition to serving students, the Digital Campus provides assistance
to the faculty of Fresno State in creating and teaching online
courses that are dynamic, interactive, and instructional.
Whether here on campus or located remotely in the region or overseas, all enrolled students can participate in the Digital Campus experience by taking either partially Web-enhanced courses that supplement the traditional classroom experience or completely Web-based courses in which only online attendance is required.
