Our Mission Statement
The mission of E-Learning Services is to support the efforts of the NNU community to effectively use e-learning technologies in teaching and learning.

ANGEL is the Learning Management System that Northwest Nazarene University uses to conduct fully online courses and to supplement face-to-face courses.
A do-it-yourself station for creating streamed video and audio is available in Technology and Media Resources (Wiley Learning Center 119), or E-Learning TAs can take care of this for you at no charge.
E-Learning Services provides training support for Tk20, a new assessment/ reporting tool being used by the Education and Counselor Education departments.
NNU licenses this plagiarism-detection software to encourage academic integrity. Support and training materials are available for both faculty and students.
