How to Use extOL Web Sites

UT Extension Online Learning (extOL) is really simple to use...

UT Extension Online Learning is a group of web sites that deliver professional development programs (the extOL Workforce Learning site), instructional content to focused and diverse learning audiences (the extOL People site), and Extension fee-based certification programs (the extOL Certifications site).

These three sites serve the outreach and program delivery needs of the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture and Tennessee Extension, and equip our Tennessee Extension professionals with the learning required to excel in their work.

Those who are NOT employed by Tennessee Extension will use the extOL Certifications site or the extOL People site for their online learning. All you have to do is create an account at the site! Once the account is created, you will have access to any online programming offered on extOL.

Here is the "Quick Start Guide" for the extOL People site:

Here's a "extOL Program Enrollment Form" for those who would like to pay by check or money order for an online program on the extOL Certifications or extOL People sites:
