Distance Learning Online: The Best of Both Worlds

Welcome to distance learning online with the Division of Continuing Studies. For over 30 years, Continuing Studies has been offering distance education for working adults across BC and beyond. We help you stay home in your community and still stay on track with your personal or professional development.

Our online learners never feel alone. Our blended learning formats maximize the flexibility that online learning offers and makes the learning experience engaging, fun and productive. Our Onlinehelp Desk supports our students in their use of learning tools like Moodle, Elluminate, blogs and wikis. Our library staff helps you carry out online research and locate material. This is what makes us different and this is why we won the Award for Excellence and Innovation in Student Services, 2007, from the Canadian Association for Distance Education.
