Program Highlights

Here is a note from a former ED 3000 student. 

ED 3000 has given me a new learning experience. I was frightened about online learning. After years in higher institution, I wanted to come to get my EBD license but was not sure how and who to direct me. One phone call to Kris Nei gave me the confidence that I was making the right decision. So I registered for ED 3000. ED 3000 has now laid out for me all of the things I needed to do, and simplified for me exactly what courses I need. Although, I had not taken online classes in the past, I feel fully ready for the next classes.  I also know where my resources are should I have questions or need help.

I had applied to other schools but ED 3000 has given me the confidence that I have made a good choice applying also to Bemidji State University. I will be able to take hybrid program and also keep a job. FasTrack has allowed me to consolidate credits from previous learning, keep a full time job, and allowed me to finally pursue licensure. FasTrack has provided me an opportunity to earn a license without retaking many of the courses I previously completed. After going through all of the assignments and materials, I know this is the right program for me. I am anxious and looking forward to being an active participant in the cohort. I’m excited for the opportunity to learn from others, connect with colleagues and succeed with my peers.”

Some great coverage about the DLiTE and FasTrack Programs on MPR:


Bemidji State University has recently been ranked of the top 30 best online bachelor’s in elementary education or early childhood education in 2017.

The ranking was created by consulting the NCES College Navigator database to find schools that offer an online bachelor’s in elementary education or early childhood education. They reviewed rankings received from major publications like Forbes magazine, The Princeton Review, and U.S. News and World Report. Then narrowed the pool to the most affordable schools based on tuition information from College Navigator. We listed the schools in order of affordability.

DLiTE at Bemidji State University was ranked 14th!
