About Stanford Online
Stanford's Online Learning Initiatives
Stanford Online offers a variety of professional education opportunities in conjunction with many of the University’s schools and departments. We also offer an array of free online courses taught by Stanford faculty to lifelong learners worldwide.
Sharing as we innovate:
Stanford Online is a university-wide initiative coordinated by the Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning (VPOL).
VPOL advances faculty-driven online learning initiatives and research, providing exceptional educational opportunities to Stanford students by transforming the way learning is organized in our classrooms and far beyond them.
We provide support to Stanford faculty and staff for course design and production, including instructional design services, content production, and online delivery.
We foster collaboration with other education organizations by sharing course material, data-driven research, and source code for enhancements to our open-source platform OpenEdX.
We continually experiment to improve what we do through creative use of technology, and we share what we learn with the rest of the world.
