Delivering Distance Education

In order to mitigate risk associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, WMU has taken a number of measures to facilitate learning and wellness.

We make learning human-centered.

WMUx imagines, designs, and realizes ideas that transform and enhance the learning experience.

COVID-19 Update

Beginning Wednesday, November 18, 2020 all classes will be delivered via distance instruction. This accelerates by three days WMU's plan to move nearly all in-person instruction to distance education.

WMUx will assist faculty members in developing strategies for continuing instruction remotely in those courses that had planned to continue in person for the full semester and that do not involve health care.
