OnLine Learning Program

The OnLine Learning (OLL) Program is a five-year-old initiative designed to give students more flexibility in when and how they attend classes. Courses are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and also for continuing education students. 

Matriculated students can submit their registration requests online via the OnLine Learning Program web site. Non-matriculated or continuing education students need to register through the Office of Continuing Education in the Academic Resource Center, Rm. 113, Curtis Hall (215-204-2500). Non-matriculated students can obtain their registration forms online (http://oll.temple.edu/conted/form.html) and submit it by fax to (215) 204-2516. For more information check the OnLine Learning website. 

Each week a student will probably receive a week's worth of assignments, discussions materials from a listserv or class bulletin board, and a conferencing session for class discussion. Therefore, becoming familiar with email and internet browsing before enrolling in an on-line course is very helpful. 

The OnLine Learning Program provides access to over 100 courses via the Internet or via Videoconferencing formats. There is one online degree completion program in Organizational Studies and the Fox School of Business has the core courses for the MBA Program in E-Business available online.
