Distance Education

Online learning offers students a contemporary means through which the University continues its tradition of outreach and open learning opportunities. Online degree-credit courses are offered by Open Learning and Educational Support (OpenEd) in collaboration with academic departments and schools. This option provides students the opportunity to create a flexible study schedule, acquire credits while away on summer break or a co-op placement, and/or choose to learn in an interactive online course environment.

Online courses are designed to foster interactivity between students, their instructor and the content. Students can expect to engage in activities, such as online discussions and individual and group assignments, using a variety of technologies and resources.

Each semester, the University offers a wide range of online degree-credit courses from a variety of disciplines. Visit the OpenEd website for a list of available online courses and more information about learning online. Please note that University of Guelph degree students must register for online courses through WebAdvisor by selecting the DE01 section.
