The Office of Distance Learning is a central service unit within the Academic Affairs Division of the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech). We provide support to Faculties in the development and delivery of distance and online-blended programmes and other related initiatives of the University.
Our mission is to facilitate the creation of technology-mediated educational opportunities that provide multiple options to diverse learners in their pursuit of higher education at UTech in fulfilment of our vision that UTech will become a regional leader in the provision of blended-distance programmes, support resources and consultancy services within the Caribbean.
The Office has collaborated with several international agencies and universities over the years including the Commonwealth of Learning, Caribbean Knowledge Learning Network, Ryerson University to develop and deliver online courses.
The University utilizes the open source system MOODLE to deliver its online courses and has been slowly acquiring additional technologies such as video and web conferencing systems to supplement the delivery of online courses.
We thank you for your continued support and welcome the opportunity to expand our network and strengthen institutional linkages.
