Today was the culmination of weeks of hard work and collaboration with the amazing team at MatchCMO. We're all proud to say that RIT Online, the new online education unit of RIT is live and open for business. RIT Online embodies RIT’s long-standing experience with distance learning, and its deep, in-house expertise in enabling immersive online interaction, collaboration and knowledge transfer.
We think it’s a great time for RIT to expand its online education program. Despite the improving economy, many graduates are unemployed and are looking for ways to acquire new skills to better compete in the jobs marketplace. For these people, the ability to demonstrate technical mastery and hands-on experience in sought-after skills is a key driver for landing a new job or taking their career in a new direction. For many, online learning represents a convenient and cost-effective way to achieve their educational objectives.
