Online Distance Learning

ODLhighlight2 Online Distance Learning (ODL) offers self-paced, online courses. Admission to LSU is not required for enrollment in ODL college credit courses, and you can enroll and begin working on your course anytime. Transfer the credit earned or meet other goals by completing college courses. Browse course descriptions and check the status of the College Credit courses or register now.

ODL allows you to earn college credit anywhere you can access the Internet. ODL courses are equivalent to classroom-delivered courses offered on the LSU campus, but use the flexibility of Internet technology solutions to provide convenient anytime/anywhere access to learning tools, including online examinations. You may enroll at any time and take up to six months to complete a course. If you are a currently admitted LSU student, you must have permission from your school or college before enrolling in an ODL course.

 Enrollment Period   The enrollment period for ODL courses is six months. But since the courses are self-paced, you can complete soonerin as little as four weeks. A single two-month extension is available if specific progress is made before the end of the regular enrollment period.
 Proctoring   ODL requires students to take all exams through an online proctoring service. You must meet that service's technical requirements, including a computer with high-speed Internet, web cam, and microphone. Students are responsible for fees charged by the proctor. Currently, ODL uses ProctorU and Examity as designated proctoring services. Visit ProctorU’s or Examity's website for more information on its requirements.
 Technology   All ODL courses are offered through Moodle, a course management system. You must  have a computer and high-speed Internet  connection to access your course and submit  your assignments on Moodle.

For detailed explanation of these and other policies, please read the full policy statements for ODL.
