Apollo Group Inc. recently received a patent for its University of Phoenix online education platform. The patent covers the University’s new Academic Activity Stream, which provides students with the opportunity to custom manage their activities, interactions with other students and teachers, and participation in course discussions all in a single, unified learning space.
As University of Phoenix students spend about 78% of their time working online using the e-campus classroom, this technology makes participation easy and allows students to sort data by upcoming activities and assignments and customize features to more efficiently manage coursework and events.

Now, with the option to study at over 200 locations and through multiple online programs all over the world, students are able to conveniently earn a degree on their own terms.
