About Online Asynchronous Deliveries

Not everyone has easy access to a college classroom. The constraints of time and location can make attending classes difficult, but College of the North Atlantic (CNA) may be closer than you think! The College's Office of Distributed Learning (DL) provides web-based online access to College credit courses as well as certificate and diploma programs.

Each year, learners from 300 Newfoundland and Labrador communities access more than 200 online courses and programs available through our online learning service. DL has also provided service to learners in every other Canadian province as well as to those in the international community.

Our online learning environment provides flexibility as well as ample opportunities to collaborate and interact with instructors and other students. Our friendly, responsive Distributed Learning Team is dedicated to establishing and maintaining high standards of academic quality and service that you can rely on.All of our online courses carry the same credentials and academic standards as their classroom equivalents. Our Help Desk operates extended hours seven days per week and provides a toll free number as well as an online chat service to ensure that you are supported throughout the duration of your course or program.

Our learners appreciate the quality and benefits of learning online: In a recent survey, 90 percent of respondents said they would recommend their Distributed Learning course to a friend.

At College of the North Atlantic's Office of Distributed Learning, we are all learners.
