List of online colleges and universities in Dubai includes:

Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University (also or previously called Total Quality Management online university in Dubai), a real university in the UAE offering online degrees and courses.

Dubai Online University (DOU, OUD), not a real university, no UAE presence or contact information found. Appears to be a website for a group of online only universities, possibly based in the USA, marketing MBA and other programs to residents in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates via another website called Online UAE Universities (OUU). Degrees awarded by any one of these institutes might not be attested or approved by UAE government authorities - immigration and education ministries for example, or attested by government agencies in other countries. Also employers in the UAE might not accept their qualifications as suitable for employment. DOU and others in the group are not accredited by any official UAE based organisation. Claimed accreditation bodies in the USA and internationally for these colleges and universities are not found in any list of approved accreditation agencies published by government education departments.

Dubai Online College - unknown, nothing found. Might be a reference to the online university.

American Online University in Dubai - not found but either a reference to American University of Dubai (AUD) online courses, or institutes in the USA similar to DOU marketing online degrees in Dubai (Hadley, Hillford, Willington, Woodbridge, etc).
Heriot Watt University Dubai online - see separate HWUD page.
Islamic Online University Dubai - not found, unless a reference to the Islamic Azad University in Dubai (unknown if IAU offers online university courses). See UAE online university list for information about Sharjah, Qatar Islamic online universities.
