Center for Statewide E-learning

A pioneer in the world of distance education.
Northern is home to the Center for Statewide E-learning. The South Dakota Legislature established the center at Northern in 2001.

The center serves South Dakota's K-12 students through distance delivery of DDN/internet-based and online high school courses. The center delivers courses - including advanced placement - that students in rural areas would otherwise have no opportunity to take.
