XI--Special Study Opportunities

Distance Education

The Distance Education program, administered by the Office of Open Learning, supports the departments in offering degree credit courses to students who choose to study independently. Generally, each course comes with a manual that may be accompanied by videotapes, audiotapes, audio CD's, computer diskettes, CD-ROMs, etc., depending on the nature of the course. As well, most courses incorporate computer conferencing, e-mail, listservs, computer-based quizzes, and the use of the Internet. Most courses are offered via the World Wide Web. Distance education provides a contemporary means through which the University of Guelph continues its tradition of outreach and open learning opportunities.

Students may take distance education courses for a variety of reasons including: distance courses providing flexibility in designing their own study schedule; allowing them to avoid timetable conflicts; allowing them an opportunity to acquire credits while away on summer break or on a co-op job placement; courses only offered via distance in a given semester; preferring to learn via distance education.

The University of Guelph recognizes the importance of distance learning and is committed to providing opportunities for the off-campus learner. A wide range of subject areas and course levels are available.

The following is a list of the courses that are offered in the distance format in selected semesters. When selecting these courses, section DE must be specified to indicate the distance education offering. Please consult Section XII--Description of Courses for course descriptions. Because additional courses are constantly being developed, please consult the Office of Open Learning, Room 160, Johnston Hall, 767-5000, email: for an updated listing on courses available by distance education and when they are scheduled to be offered.
