The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) supports Faculties that offer courses and programs to students who prefer alternative (technology-enabled) learning modes, seek scheduling flexibility, and/or are unable to come to campus.
These course offerings bridge physical and administrative distances, enabling students to balance their educational, professional, and personal lives. Our instructional design, project management, and distance education expertise strengthens UBC’s ability to leverage scarce resources to the benefit of on-campus and off-campus learners. Through these efforts, CTLT and its partners help to extend UBC’s campus throughout the province and world, positioning the University as a leader in innovative educational practice in the global community. All courses supported by CTLT carry full credit toward degree programs.
Distance education provides students with flexible learning opportunities that allow them to balance their personal, professional, and educational lives.
CTLT supports flexible learning through online distance education courses. See a list of all courses.
The Instructor Support section will provide you with resources and information about procedures specific to the delivery of distance education.
CTLT supports the development of courses and programs that use distance and blended delivery modes.
