What is SLN?
Support, Technology, and Professional Development for Online Learning
The SUNY Learning Network is a partnership with SUNY Campuses to provide support in the areas of pedagogy, technology, student and faculty support and marketing services.
With award-winning support from the SUNY Learning Network, SUNY campuses have been empowered to offer thousands of online courses in scores of degree programs to tens of thousands of students.
SLN-supported courses redefine online learning. They integrate today’s students into learning environments that provide intensive interaction, individual attention, high standards, and enhanced learning outcomes.
The SUNY Learning Network (SLN) was established to increase access to SUNY's academic programs and maintain consistently high-quality online pedagogy. SLN supports the full range of online learning, from courses that use the Web to enhance in-class teaching, through courses and full degree programs available completely online. You can read more about how SLN evolved on the SLN History page.
The SUNY Learning Network is:
- ANGEL Learning Management Software (LMS) to support the full range of online education
- Professional development for all participating faculty; regardless of LMS
- Community of users committed to access to high-quality, enhanced learning outcomes
- Technology hosting, management, development, and maintenance on SUNY-wide servers
SLN works with SUNY campus faculty and staff to provide unparalleled online learning experiences at accredited New York State Institutions. SLN supports campuses with educational training specifically created for online teaching and learning.
SLN also provides helpdesk services for both students and faculty who participate in the SUNY Learning Network. This support gives SUNY SLN online students the opportunity to work in virtual classrooms that foster intensive interaction, individual attention, high standards, and enhanced learning outcomes.
