Distance Education and Learning Technologies (DELT) is responsible for the design, development and delivery of credit courses and degree programs via distance; advancement and support of e-learning throughout the University; and support for students and faculty in the use and application of technologies for effective teaching and learning. Through its activities DELT connects students across the province, the country and the world that have limited educational opportunities due to time and location. It also works to enhance, promote and support an e-learning vision throughout the institution. DELT strives to provide faculties and departments with the e-learning expertise and knowledge needed to progress the University's mandate in expanding and improving its on-line education delivery. A Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Education's Centre for Distance Learning and Innovation (CDLI), who deliver distance education to K-12 students, allows DELT to share knowledge and information and prepare for the incoming university student.
