Colorado Online and Distance Education is a consortium of Colorado's public four year higher education institutions. The members of the Colorado Consortium are committed to providing access to courses, programs, and services through their extended studies and continuing education departments. More information about the member institutions is available here, or you can find out more about extended studies here.
Colorado Online and Distance Education courses listed on this web site enable you to overcome the boundaries of distance and time. All courses listed are delivered at a distance. These courses may be print-based correspondence, independent study and semester based delivered through e-mail, DVD or online.
These courses provide guided instruction, available at a distance and on demand, so that you can remove educational boundaries created by geography, by professional demands, or by family responsibilities. Education at a distance does not mean that you are alone. Your instructor not only evaluates and comments on your assignments and examinations, but also provides answers to questions and advice on how to be more successful in your course. In some cases interaction with other students is an essential piece of the course experience.
