The Catalog of Distance Learning is published online each spring and fall by Instructional Communications Systems, UW-Extension. The catalog is a compilation of programs and courses offered via distance learning technologies from the UW System institutions. It features listings and descriptions for more than 200 credit and non-credit programs along with information about each of the technologies, site lists, and contact and registration information.
Courses listed in the catalog cover a wide range of topics: from degree completion courses and online degree programs, to programs offered to update local government officials on new laws and trends, to courses for personal enrichment, and many more. Courses are offered statewide, nationally and internationally. Technologies used for delivery include audio teleconferencing, Web conferencing, two-way interactive video, satellite video, and the Web.
The catalog is available on the Web. The course database is searchable by key word, technology, sponsoring institution, credit type, and subject. It features links to many other sites of interest, including degree program information, links to the distance education networks around the state, and to schedule, registration, credit transfer, and other information of use to current and potential students.
