The Office of Distributed Learning (ODL) is a service unit that advances the UofSC's mission to grow Distributed Learning (DL) courses and programs by working collaboratively with other academic and service units to support both faculty and students. ODL's mission is to increase the number of DL courses and programs offered by USC Columbia to relieve classroom space constraints and provide the diverse student population with more flexibility and choices for learning. 


  1. Increase the number of DL courses and programs.
  2. Promote DL courses and programs through effective marketing.
  3. Continue outreach and collaboration with other university academic faculty support units.
  4. Provide faculty and student support services integrating current and emerging technologies.
