The Office of Distance Learning and Instructional Technology supports faculty and assists in providing students with online learning opportunities through distance learning, as well as a wide array of instructional technologies that empower the design and development of learning environments and contribute to student success.

We partner with and support faculty in the creation, design and delivery of high-quality distributed learning by supporting UNT Dallas faculty in the design and implementation of instructional technologies for classroom, online and hybrid courses and work with the administration, IT and faculty to choose and implement best practices for instructional technologies to enhance and extend the learning environment in and beyond the classroom, as well as assist in the marketing of online/hybrid courses.
