Testimonials from Alumni
The program opened new windows into online teaching and learning in higher education, exposed me to the rich history the military has in distance education and innovation, and gave me a better understanding of the exciting challenges of integrating technology into K-12 educational environments.
The faculty was very supportive throughout the entire program. There was never a time I felt slighted, in the terms of resources and support from the faculty just because I was an online student.
The reputation and preparation at the University of Florida made me competitive among employers compared to other graduates. The diverse faculty interests coupled with opportunities to collaborate with other programs and departments allows graduate students a great deal of flexibility to pursue unique areas of interest.
I’m a proud alumni for life – Go Gators!
