Salesian Online non-credit courses are delivered entirely through distance education in an electronically mediated format -- that is, on-line through the Internet by way of the "BLACKBOARD" and COURSESITES software platform at DeSales University.

By working in a "virtual classroom," students and faculty need not be in the same place at the same time, which makes these courses more readily accessible to anyone and everyone who is interested!
These non-credit courses are offered in 6- or 8-week sessions in each of the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Typically, each course includes
- ♦ instructor's notes
- ♦ readings (books or articles)
- ♦ discussion forums
- ♦ other learning activities
Instructors for these courses include faculty members from DeSales University and other scholars from various institutions with expertise in Salesian spirituality.
