2U, Our Program Partner
The Fordham University Graduate School of Education has partnered with 2U Inc.to deliver its online degree programs.
Founded in 2008 by a team of education and technology veterans, 2U enables colleges and universities to deliver their high-quality degree programs online to qualified students anywhere.
In addition to Fordham GSE, 2U works with a number of leading universities to support their online graduate programs, including the University of Southern California, Georgetown University, and Northwestern University. 2U supports programs across the fields of education, including teaching, TESOL, special education, school counseling, and organizational leadership.
2U provides the following services for the Fordham GSE online programs:
In preparation for live classes, students watch pre-recorded content that is developed by GSE faculty and produced in collaboration with 2U content strategists. The content is designed specifically for delivery online, and faculty work with 2U strategists and video production specialists to ensure that the content takes advantage of current technologies.
Student Acquisition and Application Processing
2U's marketing and recruiting team supports GSE's goal of finding students who are most likely to succeed in their intensive degree programs. 2U worked with GSE to develop an online application management system, but as with all Fordham University programs, applications are reviewed by Fordham faculty and staff, who make all admissions decisions.
Technology and Support
Students in the Fordham GSE online programs access a virtual campus for their classes, coursework, and networking. The 2U platform is available from most internet-enabled devices and features an online classroom that brings students face-to-face for live class sessions. Classes are led by GSE faculty and instructors, and the virtual campus is designed with familiar features that foster connection and collaboration among students.
2U provides technical training for faculty and instructors so they are best able to use the online platform to lead classes and deliver course materials. 2U also offers orientation to all online students before classes begin. Dedicated support continues throughout the program with technical support available during every live session.
