A Digital Learning Experience Like No Other
Our personalized learning platform keeps you connected and engaged … for life.
We want WashU Olin students to stay connected—to courses, classmates, instructors and the school. That’s why we created learn.WashU, a next gen, proprietary learning management system without parallel. From specially designed class sessions to robust communication tools to lifelong learning opportunities, you’ll remain engaged and continue to grow long after you leave your student days behind you.
Our innovative Center for Digital Education (CDE) is the driving force behind your digital experience. The center’s goal is to provide world-class eLearning support for the school, and that happens in many new and exciting ways: digital course design, online course delivery, lifelong learning modules, media production, faculty training and digital publishing.
Partnering with faculty for enhanced learning
Superior digital learning starts with a partnership between faculty and the CDE’s eLearning support team. Together, they collaborate to create compelling learning experiences for students, alumni and others in and outside the WashU Olin community.
From initial analysis to development to final delivery, instructional designers work closely with faculty to develop curriculum, whether for a brief online learning component, a fully online course or complete degree programs.
Video and multimedia experts join instructional designers and faculty to create rich media resources to promote and support your learning.
Publishing specialists work to deliver content on time and to the highest standards, including copyediting, adherence to a CDE house style, and full copyright and accessibility checking.
State-of-the-art recording facilities
In 2019, WashU Olin established the Center for Digital Education, a bold investment in developing world-class studio and recording facilities. Located in the heart of the school in Bauer Hall, these facilities include audio and webinar suites, green screen studios and digital publishing capabilities. These resources enable the CDE staff to team with faculty and other experts to produce exceptional video, audio and multimedia content.
“The online learning experience was world-class. The learning portal is extremely well designed and implemented. It made it easy to navigate through modules, integrated multimedia such as videos nicely, and supported classroom discussion, all through a responsive, easy-to-use interface.”
