A resource for those studying by online distance learning
This ODL web site is intended as a resource for anyone wanting to obtain online training and online degrees. It provides advice on a range of distance courses, including online graduate programs, online PhD programs, and online certificate courses. It has advice on studying at an online college or online university, information about learning styles, about healthy posture, and even includes details of how you can obtain free online learning.
But the site also contains information for those wishing to study on campus. In some cases, links to suitable campus schools are provided as well. In particular, the search boxes enable you to search for campus-based programs and schools.
A resource for those interested in online teaching
The web site seeks to show how new ICTs – e.g., open educational resources, open source, Web 2.0, blogs, wikis, social networking, social bookmarking and other social software – can be used for online education study (e-learning) or to conduct classes online in distance courses. Or how such ICTs enable collaborative teaching. It also touches on some of the new ICT hardware possibilities for online schools, such as wireless communication.
More information about campus programs
For those students who feel that online learning and distance education is not for them, the web site also has a section on campus programs. You can also use this link to search for a program or a school near you.
