Open Learning and Educational Support offers a wide selection of distance education (DE) courses from a variety of disciplines. Delivered entirely online, DE courses are designed with flexibility in mind. Since there are no scheduled classes to attend, you can take advantage of studying at a time and place that is convenient for you, from anywhere in the world.
Distance education courses are primarily delivered asynchronously, which means that interactions may occur at different times. Distance courses are just as academically demanding as on-campus courses and are equivalent in terms of curriculum and credit weight.
Courses are taught by instructors with significant disciplinary expertise. They will guide you through the course content, while supporting an active and engaging learning environment.
DE courses are offered in each of the three semesters and follow the same academic schedule as on-campus University of Guelph courses.
