DELTA centrally administers NC State’s online and distance education activities and support services through its Distance Education (DE) unit. DE schedules online and distance-based courses and sections. DE provides application, enrollment and student advising services for non-degree studies' students. DE provides student communications, course detail information, a virtual orientation, an online FAQ, campus proctoring services and remote testing arrangements. DELTA collaborates with other NC State units to provide library resources, student registration, authentication with a unique campus ID and password, ID cards, financial aid and billing services for DE students.

DELTA also manages the university’s learning technology infrastructure, including various asynchronous learning management systems (WolfWare, Moodle), Blackboard Collaborate, a tool for synchronous online teaching and learning, and lecture capture technologies for all technology-assisted courses, whether online or on-campus.
