Distance education is a convenient and flexible way to take courses for college credit. Students can take classes to earn a degree or certificate or to explore personal interests. We offer distance education classes in online and hybrid formats. Since these are fully credited college classes, students be admitted to the college before taking any of these courses. Registration for these classes follows the same procedures and deadlines as traditional on-campus courses. Students should be comfortable with basic computer programs and concepts such as, but not limited to, email and attachments of files.
Online courses consist of courses where all instruction traditionally provided in class is replaced with instruction online. However, an online course may require in-person student orientation and/or proctored tests/assignments.
Hybrid instruction is provided both in-class and online (in any combination). Face-to-face meetings may include lectures, labs, group work, presentations, etc. Students in hybrid courses should log into Moodle* on the first day of the semester and not wait until the first on campus meeting.
*Moodle is the “Learning Management System” currently used by the College to facilitate Distance Education.
