WorldWide Wildcats Weekly Email
August 20, 2018
Welcome all new and returning Kansas State University Global Campus students to the beginning of the fall 2018 semester. Note to self: you've got this! Charge your electronics, because every week for the next 16 weeks, we'll be delivering you need-to-know information just for distance students — aka the WorldWide Wildcats.
As you progress through your online courses, you may encounter new technology-related terms or systems. This list of distance learning terminology may help identify some of the requirements or features in your courses. #likeaboss
