Documentation:Faculty Resource Guide/Distance Learning
UBC offers flexible learning through online and print-based distance education courses. Distance education courses provide high quality education to UBC students who are unable to attend scheduled classes on campus or who want to experience distance learning education as part of their program. These courses carry full credit toward degree or certificate programs, in accordance with the requirements of the UBC Faculty concerned. Many courses are delivered completely online and use a diversity of learning tools, including discussion forums, chat rooms, wikis, weblogs and e-portfolios to enhance student learning.
The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) partners with faculties and departments to plan, develop and deliver the majority of the University’s undergraduate distance learning courses. Students can choose from over 125 distance education courses, spanning 30 different subject areas.
The Faculty of Education and CTLT partner to offer a fully online Masters of Educational Technology. A wide range of credit based courses for teaching professionals are offered through the Faculty of Education’s External Programs and Learning Technologies unit. In addition, distance education courses are offered by Continuing Studies, the Creative Writing Program, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Rehabilitation Sciences, the Sauder School of Business and the Writing Centre.
