Salesian Online - Course Delivery and Format
Salesian Online courses are delivered entirely through distance education in an electronically mediated format -- that is, on-line through the Internet by way of the "ANGEL" 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!
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.
(There is a fee of $75 per course to cover administrative costs.)
"This program is an answer to a prayer! My interest in Salesian spirituality was hampered by the lack of access to study materials, as well as to lay people trying to 'Live Jesus'. This online program changed all that. The Internet eliminates the geographical obstacles. I'd prefer to live near a Salesian center, but now it's not an issue, since I can go online and meet and interact with people all over the USA who value Salesian spirituality."
