The University of North Texas has 2 100% online LING courses, one intro. course at the undergraduate level (LING 3060) and one advanced intro. course at the upper undergraduate/graduate level (LING 4040/5040).  LING 4040/5040 won a 2005 WebCT Exemplary Course Award.  Both of these are 3 credit courses.  You can find info. at www.untecampus.com.  Right now these courses are listed under College of Arts and Sciences/English (because Linguistics was in the English Dept.).  We have just gotten our own department (as of the fall 2008 semester Linguistics will be in the Dept. of Linguistics and Technical Communication) so we'll be much easier to find.  I'd be happy to provide more info. on how to register if anyone is interested.

I'm just curious as to whether, and if so from where, one can take
accredited, worthwhile university credit courses in linguistics
online or by other distance education means. I'm aware that MIT makes
many course materials available free online, but as far as I know you
can't get credit for their courses unless you're a regular student
showing up in person etc. -- i.e., you can't register and take the
courses online. Or am I wrong? And what about elswhere? US, Canada,
UK, Australia, NZ?
