Even Before Pandemic - UNLV NewsCenter Even Before Pandemic - UNLV NewsCenter Posted: 05 Oct 2020 12:00 AM PDT Even before the coronavirus pandemic propelled UNLV into remote learning in the spring, online courses at UNLV were prevalent.  "There's been a steady decrease in the number of students that have never taken an online course," said Elizabeth Barrie, the director of the Office of Online Education . She recently presented during The State of Online Education webinar event. It highlighted some of the initiatives and cross-campus partnerships that contribute to student achievement and shared how faculty prepared for online learning through the summer. She noted that 95% of students who graduated in spring 2020 with an undergraduate degree had taken at least one online course. And, compared to past years, there has been an increase in the number of students who have taken more than 30 credits, or two semesters, online.

LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Both major universites in Nevada will be making the transition to online instruction as concerns about the coronavirus lead to increasing calls for the banning of large group get-togethers.

The University of Nevada-Las Vegas and The University of Nevada, Reno will be starting online classes on March 23rd.  

Both campuses will remain open, but all classes will be moved to online.  

Both schools have also created a Coronavirus Information Page, which provides updates to all students, staff, parents and the community. That link can be found here.

Over the weekend, the College of Southern Nevada released a statement saying it would be moving to an online learning environment, as well, beginning Wednesday.

Finally, Touro University in Henderson announced it's plans to go all online at some point next week. The 1,500 student school is the largest medical school in the state of Nevada.
