Prospective Students

Welcome to eLearning at the University of Texas at Dallas. This site offers a chance for you to explore the university's completely online and hybrid (requiring campus visits) offerings. A course demo is available on the Online Programs webpage for you to see how a sample online course is set up. In addition, a distance education self assessment is available to help you determine if online learning is right for you. If you have any questions, contact [email protected].

Is Distance Learning Right for Me?

Distance Learning is different from traditional classroom courses. Many new distance learners are unaware of the amount of work and time involved to successfully complete a Distance Learning course. It is the student's responsibility to process and learn from the information provided by the instructor. Distance Learning requires students to work independently without a lot of interaction and prompting from the instructor.

To find out whether Distance Learning is right for you, take the self-assessment quiz.
