New Media & Extended Learning (NMEL) is in the process of expanding its services and restructuring operations in accordance with a merge between Extended University and Continuing Education. This site provides information about Extended Learning’s IT, Faculty Services, Student Services, and Compliance & Strategic Initiatives, known collectively as NMEL. Under Extended Learning, these areas are responsible for the administration of online and ITV courses at the University of New Mexico, the implementation and management of UNM's enterprise Learning Management System, and a host of online media and production services.
