Distance Learning & Online Instruction
- Distance learning and online courses have become an integral part of the University along with traditional classroom instruction.
Distance learning brings together an instructor and students via technology. At UConn, distance learning, also know as iTV, refers specifically to courses taught using a videoconference (interactive television) system, which enables students and the instructor to see and hear each other in real time. In an iTV course a student can be located at Storrs or at any of the five regional campuses.

- The University has online education opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students ranging from single courses to complete degree programs. Online courses are also offered for undergraduate, graduate, and non-degree students. In an online course, all required contact hours are internet-based. Contact includes instruction, learning activities, and interactions (both student-student and/or student-instructor). Completion of assessments and exams in-person at authorized proctoring locations may be required at the instructor’s discretion (this includes semester and final assessments and exams).
