What is Memorial@Home?
Memorial@Home, Memorial's online and distance education provider, brings one of Canada's top comprehensive universities right to your doorstep. Offering the flexibility and convenience to study online at anytime, our courses are of the same academic rigor and duration as on-campus courses, with the only difference being the delivery mode.
Currently, Memorial offers over 400 courses by distance, as well as a variety of programs from 10 faculties and schools. Our programs can be completed either fully or partially online (with some on-campus courses required). Undergraduate programs include bachelor of arts, bachelor of arts (police studies), bachelor of business administration, bachelor of maritime studies and bachelor of technology.
How do I register?
The registration process for distance education courses is the same as the registration process for on-campus courses. You can refine your course selection to show only distance education courses by choosing Distance Education from the Campus menu. After you register, it is strongly recommended that you add/update your Distance Education (DE) mailing address in the Personal Information menu of Memorial Self-Service. A current distance education address will assist us with the exam scheduling process and distribution of printed course materials. This address may or may not be the same as your permanent address.
How do I access my courses?
You can access your distance education courses and related materials on the Internet through Desire2Learn (D2L), Memorial's learning management system. Courses may include all or some of the following instructional delivery methods: assigned readings, video clips, audio components, interactive web activities and threaded discussions.
Instructors are available to assist you according to their course policy, either via course email or by telephone, and DELTS technical support staff are available seven days a week to provide technical support assistance. A Desire2Learn Help website is also available to guide you through the online learning environment and answer any questions you may have.
As a new distance education student, you'll be invited to attend an online orientation session where you can meet some of our staff, ask any questions you may have and get some basic tips to help you succeed in your first semester. You will also receive our CONNECT newsletter for new distance education students, which will provide you with the information you'll need to guide you through your first semester including details about textbooks and course materials, information and services, technical support and examinations. The newsletter also provides information about academic accommodation (i.e. extended time for tests and exams) for students with disabilities.
