The Temple University Online Learning (OLL) Program offers fully online courses for distance learning. Per the Temple OLL web site:

The Online Learning (OLL) Program at Temple University is designed to give students more flexibility in when and how they attend classes, and to enable professionals to continue their education according to their own schedules. Courses are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to continuing education students.

Courses are offered in mixed modes, and may use a combination of web, email, listservs, and videoconferences. Most are taught by full-time faculty members from Temple University. Students use Blackboard and Horizon Wimba.

Students who enrol in Temple's OLL classes need not be enroled previously at Temple University.
