Learning Design and Technology


The LDT program is transitioning to BGSU’s new eCampus in Fall 2015, which means shorter classes for LDT students! 


If you are a new LDT student beginning this fall, please contact Sherri Orwick Ogden at sorwick@bgsu.edu to learn more about registration, financial aid and billing.
