Are there full programs available via WebNet+?

Webster University is pleased to announce that the Master of Public Administration and Master of Science in Space Systems Operations Management are now launching in the WebNet+ format. Students interested in these programs should keep in mind that they will require synchronous meetings across all timezones. Please see the schedule above for course details. Check back for updates and information!

What equipment will I need to take a WebNet+ course?

Students participating in a Webnet+ course will need internet access, a computer with a web camera, speakers, and a microphone.  This allows the student to be seen and heard while they participate in the session. 

What software should I expect to use to connect to my WebNet+ course?

Students will receive an email from their instructor including the link and password information they will need to join their class one week prior to class beginning. If you have not received this information you will want to reach out to your instructor directly.
Webster University currently uses two platforms to deliver WebNet+ courses based on the course needs. Students should receive notification from their instructor regarding which platform they will be using to. Students who will be using WebEx for their course is encouraged to visit the WebEx site (https:///websteru.webex.com). Review the Support Center resources in order to conduct a set-up of WebEx on your computer. Students who will be using Vidyo is encouraged to review the Vidyo site (www.vidyo.com) to learn more about using Vidyo prior to the start of the course.

What is it like to take a course in the WebNet+ format?

WebNet+ courses are media rich, synchronous, interactive learning experiences. Students who enroll in a WebNet+ course should expect to attend class sessions at the noted time. Students should expect to allow themselves time to login and connect to the class, to test their equipment prior to their first login and to familiarize themselves with the software their instructor will use to deliver the course.  

How can I prepare to take a WebNet+ course?

Students can prepare themselves to take a WebNet+ course by familiarizing themselves with WorldClassRoom. Instructors will utilize WorldClassRoom to share documents and supporting materials with students, to accept assignments and administer quizzes, midterms and finals. 

 What technical support is available to me?

If you have questions related to the content of your course, activities or grades you will want to reach out to your instructor directly via WorldClassRoom or email.

If you have technical questions regarding your computer or system requirements please contact the Media & Academic Technology Services department for assistance.

If you have questions about what courses are available via WebNet+ or how to enroll please contact the Online Learning Center at studyonline@webster.edu

 Am I able to take any course offered via WebNet+ from my home?

All courses listed on this page are available to be taken from home. If you need assistance enrolling please contact studyonline@webster.edu with your student ID and the course number you are interested in.   

What is the tuition rate for a WebNet+ course?

Currently students who are attending the class from home or from their personal device at a location of their choosing pay the online tuition rate. Students attending physically at a Webster University location pay the rate for that site location.
