The Centre for Extended Learning (CEL) supports the design, development and delivery of online credit and non-credit courses for the University of Waterloo, offers professional development opportunities to the world, and advocates for adult, part-time and online learners.

"We've been extending learning and bringing Waterloo education to the world for almost 50 years."

Online credit course creation

Our talented team works with Waterloo's faculties and university colleges to provide world-class educational options in an online environment. We help faculty members and instructors develop academically rigorous courses and provide training and support to ensure Waterloo students succeed in their online academic endeavours. 

Support for adult, part-time and online learners

CEL understands the additional complexities that adult, part-time and fully online learners face in your academic careers, and we advocate on your behalf with our University of Waterloo partners. Most services that are offered on-campus are available to all admitted students regardless of location. 

Waterloo students taking online courses meet the same admission requirements as those in on-campus programs, and are held to the same high standards of educational excellence. 

Non-credit, professional development opportunities

We can help you develop skills to strengthen your professional profile and enhance your knowledge. ​We offer an array of professional development opportunities in subject areas including business, leadership, project management, customer service, technology and communication.
