Distance Learning

What is distance learning?

Distance learning allows you to take a course anytime and anywhere. It gives you the flexibility of studying when you want (Tuesday evening at 9, Saturday morning at 6:30, during your lunch hour at work) and where you want (from your home, from your office, while traveling).

Distance learning courses teach the very same competencies as courses offered at a campus. The difference is in the delivery. Instead of having an instructor provide a lecture and lead a classroom discussion, distance courses are delivered over the Internet, by using combinations of print, audio and/or video, and correspondence, like email. Most courses require a textbook and a specially developed course packet. Some courses may require CD-ROMs, audio and/or videocassettes or other materials. You should always read all materials related to the course to learn the specifics of what will be needed to complete the course.

Below is a listing of online course resources that are designed to help you meet your educational goals and Oklahoma public institutions that offer distance education.
