The University of the Free State (UFS) supports online degree learning.

The university's Division of e-Learning web site notes:

"At the UFS e-learning includes online courses, learning objects, blended learning, (which combines online resources with face-to-face interactions), performance support, knowledge management, self-assessment, communities of practice (online educational communities) and other online resources that encourage learners to assess, improve, or change their knowledge or clinical performance."

Among these things the site also lists a few resources for the educators and e-learning module makers.

The University of the Free State is situated in Bloemfontein, the capital of the Free State, South Africa. It is a public university established in 1904.
