About UC San Diego Online

In order to support the growing interest of online course and program delivery, UC San Diego launched a branded instance of Open edX in 2019 tailored to the learning needs of our campus and the global community. UC San Diego Online is based on Open edX, an open source learning management system (LMS) with a large supportive community. Open edX is the same platform that powers edX.org.

UC San Diego is committed to providing global access to scholarship and research via UC San Diego Online. Courses and programs provide opportunities to learn from and engage with the campus community.

The UC San Diego Online Team

UC San Diego’s Online is administered by the Teaching + Learning Commons and supported by Information Technology Services. This partnership enables the campus to provide a variety of educational opportunities to support academic degrees, career advancement and enrichment.

The Teaching + Learning Commons offers programs and services which create a contiguous, multi-layered network of support that jointly enhance learning and increase academic success.

Information Technology Services provides custom development and system maintenance that enables access to UC San Diego scholarship and teaching through the Open edX platform.
