South Dakota Gov. Bill Janklow has proposed creating a $2 million learning center at Northern State University (NSU), which, he says, will help rural schools deal with teacher shortages and make the Aberdeen campus a national center for distance education.

One of six public universities in South Dakota, NSU has an emphasis on teacher training. The university has an enrollment of more than 3,100.

Under the governor's plan, the school would offer upper-level high school chemistry, physics, calculus, and other courses via distance learning to the state's K-12 districts.
