Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Online

Introduction

Embry-Riddle Worldwide is known for more than just our highly regarded aviation and aerospace programs. We offer a range of associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees, Ph.D., and certificate programs in multiple sectors — from business to engineering to fire science. Rigorous courses are taught by industry-leading experts who understand the demands of full-time work and military life because they have been there. Embry-Riddle Worldwide also offers flexible modes of learning that enable access to Embry-Riddle online courses anytime, anywhere.

In 1971, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University — Worldwide became one of the first 20 universities in the world to offer distance learning. Lessons and completed coursework were mailed back and forth between the professors and students.

More than 40 years later, Embry-Riddle Worldwide continues to raise the bar with its award-winning online higher learning methods, technology, faculty, and support staff.

And with these advancements in technology and education methods, Embry-Riddle Worldwide has grown to three academic colleges — Aeronautics, Arts and Sciences, and Business. Each College offers a variety of online degrees including associate’s to graduate-level classes, certifications, and professional programs.

EagleVision

In 2007, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University launched EagleVision, a virtual classroom that combines Web video conferencing and a learning management system to amplify the benefits of synchronous learning.

EagleVision allows for real-time collaboration in a student-centered learning environment. With technology and keeping academic quality at the forefront, we are able to offer three course delivery modes — EagleVision Classroom (between classrooms), EagleVision Home (faculty and students at home), and a blend of Classroom or Home.

EagleVision Classroom includes scheduled online times and real-time interaction with other students and professors.

EagleVision Home offers all of the same benefits of EagleVision Classroom, but from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere you have a computer and the internet.

Canvas

Embry-Riddle Worldwide upgraded its Learning Management System to Canvas, an educational platform designed with the online teaching and learning experience in mind.

Canvas is a cloud-based system that is viewable on any web browser, computer or mobile, and allows for engagement and collaboration through video, audio, integrated media recorder, text, and discussion boards. Canvas also offers a free mobile app as another tool to stay connected.

Canvas’ SpeedGrader system gives faculty the ability to spend less time doing administrative work, and more time engaging the students. It converts documents automatically, so teachers can preview and annotate student submissions without having to download or upload files. The inline annotation tool enables highlighting, strikeout, and freehand drawing.

Staying connected to your courses, faculty, and other students is made easy by Canvas. The learning management system allows you the freedom to select receive notifications and course updates through email, text message, Facebook, and Twitter.

Virtual Crash Lab

In May 2014, Embry-Riddle Worldwide launched its Virtual Crash Lab, another innovation by the University to enhance online students’ experiences.

Embry-Riddle Worldwide faculty and staff, working with vendors Pinnacle Solutions and Unity, integrated the gamification of education into the College of Aeronautics curriculum.

Within this environment, students will be able to examine the aircraft accident scene, document evidence, and even interview survivors. This lab will enhance the learning environment for several of our safety courses.

During the exercise, students gather and submit data that satisfy certain accident investigation criteria: survival factors, human factors, aircraft structures, aircraft systems, operations and maintenance. Faculty can then assess student knowledge and comprehension by examining the evidence collected and explanation of findings.
