About Learning Online

Memorial University is a Canadian leader in online learning, offering over 475 online courses in over 40 subject areas.

Each semester, nearly one quarter of on-campus students complete one or more online courses, enabling greater flexibility to complement on-campus schedules and life responsibilities. Online learning also gives students the convenience of advancing studies during work terms and summer breaks.

Administered by CITL, Memorial’s online courses are designed specifically for a web-based environment, and are offered through the Brightspace learning management system. Brightspace enables students to submit assignments, complete quizzes, participate in discussion forums and class chats, and email instructors, all from one place.

Courses incorporate a variety of resources such as video conferencing, interactive multimedia and other learning technologies to best present the course material in an effective and accessible way.

The registration process for online courses is the same as the registration process for on-campus courses. View a complete listing of undergraduate and graduate online offerings at Memorial University.
