UAB was recently named a 2021 IDG CIO Opens a neww window 100 award winner for its innovative technology solutions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including its classroom technology. However, our online class technology was thoughtfully crafted prior to the pandemic, and always will be.

All of our online programs implement top technology including Lightboard and Podium programs, and are purposefully crafted for synchronous online learning that allows professors and students to meet in real time.

In fact, many of our online and hybrid/blended courses have gone through the Quality Matters peer review process, meeting the gold-standard for online courses and programs. This means all of the courses you take with UAB Online have undergone a rigorous peer-reviewed process to ensure quality instruction and continuous improvement.
