Mission Statement:

The Office of Digital Learning’s (ODL) mission is to strengthen Sacred Heart University’s spectrum of teaching and learning for campus-based and online educational contexts, by fostering innovative teaching and active learning. ODL’s primary function is to support faculty in their goal of enhancing teaching for the digital learning environments.


The Office of Digital Learning was created in Fall 2013. By synthesizing the several digital initiatives that are already underway across the different colleges, ODL’s goals for the first stage of a three-year plan include

  • enhancing teaching through the application of digital pedagogies for synchronous and asynchronous environments;
  • identifying, evaluating, and implementing suitable digital tools to strengthen student learning via multimodal access; and 
  • exploring opportunities for the development and delivery of global digital curricula in niche areas
