Gale Courses

Gale Courses are online instructor-led courses in a wide variety of topics -- all free to DPL cardholders.  There are hundreds of courses available, with more added frequently.

Whether you're looking for professional development or personal enrichment, these six-week courses are the perfect way to learn a new skill or enhance your existing ones.  You'll spend roughly two to four hours each week completing two engaging lessons in an enjoyable, interactive learning environment.  Expert instructors develop and lead every course, and you'll be able to interact with them and with fellow students in lively online discussion areas.  New sessions start every month, so you can sign up anytime.  Upon completing a course with a passing score, you'll get an award of completion from your learning institution.
