Acadia University's home for online and community learning

A student smiles as she works at a laptop in a cozy bedroom or loft space.

Open Acadia offers programs designed for youth, community, and lifelong learning audiences. We also support faculty course development and the administration of Graduate Education programming.

We have recently restructured to serve our students and community more effectively. The Learning Technology Centre and Instructional Design Units have merged to provide faculty teaching online and on-campus centralized support. Among other changes, enquiries by students regarding Spring/Summer courses and online undergraduate credit courses are now handled by the Registrar's Office.

Open Acadia supports and administers the following programs and services:

  • The Learning Technology & Instructional Design (LTID) team is the home of all faculty learning technology support, from the development and design of online courses to the use of ACORN for on-campus courses.

  • Online Learning courses offer students the opportunity and flexibility to study anywhere, anytime in both continuous-intake (open-entry) courses and term-based courses.
  • The Master of Education (M.Ed.) Programming team collaborates with our academic units and with various school boards and groups to provide full-time, part-time, and cohort programs for teachers and educational professionals.

  • Spring & Summer 2023 courses can be found here. Registration will be available in early 2023.
