Distance Learning Classes (Credit)

Distance Learning at Indiana University South Bend - learn anytime, anywhere and at your convenience. We offer an ever-expanding list of online courses designed for students who, for one reason or another, are unable to attend a course on-campus , or want to incorporate e-learning into their education .

What is distance learning? Students take their course online - communicating via email, phone, discussion forums and complete assignments they receive within their course site in Oncourse. Instructors may use a variety of activities and teaching methods in order to engage the students in a lively manner. As a student you may encounter an instructor who has video presentations to supplement textbook readings. Students will rarely, if ever, have to come to a campus in order to complete a course.

Take a look around the site - explore - make yourself at home. See what IU South Bend is doing with distance learning.
