Geaux the distance with online teaching

The Office of Distance Learning keeps our faculty at the forefront of learning-oriented technology, offering professional development and training opportunities to ensure the University can offer the best learning experiences to our students, online or in the classroom.

Take Teaching Beyond Classrooms

Online learning offers everyone the opportunity to continue their education. Our Online Teacher and Course Designer certification allows our faculty to reimagine the traditional professor-student roles and take academia into the 21st century.

Remote Instruction

Faculty transitioning to Remote or HyFlex instruction should refer to the Teach Remotely section of the website. The Office of Distance Learning has compiled resources and tutorials for setting up and teaching courses in Moodle. 

For student resources, refer to the Remote Learners page of the Online Programs site.
