Columbia Video Network: Forbes' "Best of the Web"Columbia
Video Network (CVN) has earned a designation from Forbes Magazine
as "Best of the Web" for online higher education websites.
Forbes called the website "one of the most up-to-date online
higher education sites you'll find." Last year, CVN enrollments
exceeded 1,000 for the first time, and enrollments are expected
to increase by 30% this year. All CVN courses are now online.
"We have a significant number of international students,"
said Executive Director Grace Chung, "representing every continent
except Antarctica." Ms. Chung credits her staff for much of
CVN's success. "I am fortunate to have such a dedicated group
of people working with me," she said. "We are constantly
striving to make Columbia Video Network better for both the companies
and the graduate students we serve."
Forbes said: "Columbia University's graduate engineering school
offers degrees in six programs, almost entirely over the Internet.
You can follow classes in Medical Informatics, Genomic Information
Science and Technology and Industrial Electrochemistry. . . . Download
class notes, course materials, homework assignments and syllabuses
over the Internet. . . . The best feature: professors must respond
to student emails within 24 hours."
