XI. Special Study Opportunities

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, offered by Open Learning and Educational Support (OpenEd) in collaboration with academic departments and schools, provide 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 fully online course environment. Online courses are designed to foster interactivity between students, the instructor and the content and students can expect to engage in activities such as online discussions and individual and group assignments, using a variety of technologies and resources.

The University offers a wide range of online degree-credit courses from a variety of disciplines each semester. A list of available online courses can be found on the OpenEd website. University of Guelph degree students register for online courses through WebAdvisor by selecting the DE01 section.
