Distance Learning

image Welcome to the Virginia Dept of Health Distance Learning Program !

- Distance Learning is a form of instruction that focuses on technology and instructional systems design that aims to deliver education to students who are not physically "on site".

In today's fast-paced computer age, with unknown budget restrictions, on demand information is key to Virginia Department of Health employees. We are committed to a program that will keep agency employees on the leading edge of distance learning information, technology, and resources.

Employees can access our internal VDH Web through the link to the left.
