Welcome to the College of Arts & Sciences Online Learning and Academic Technology Services website! We look forward to helping with your online course and classroom technology needs.

Our office was recently renamed so that it is more in line with our expanded mission to serve the needs of all CAS instructors.  As you can see, we are no longer CAS Online Programs but instead, CAS-OATS. OATS stands for Online Learning and Academic Technology Services. With this new focus, we have also expanded our staff by two!

Developing an online course is a time intensive process, but there are many tools available to help you along the way. We are ready to help draft plans to get you started with your online course. Contact us to get started!
