Distance Learning

Interested in Taking a Distance Learning Course

Find out all the in and outs on how to go about taking Distance Learning courses.

What types of Distance Learning Courses do you offer?

  • Asynchronous – Instructor and students are not present in the same place at the same time. Instructional materials may be pre-recorded or prepared as a tutorial for self-paced work.
  • Synchronous – course content is delivered in an instructor-led class on a fixed schedule, with students and instructors present. The classroom may be either physical or virtual.
  • Traditional Courses (in the classroom) – 100% of the instruction is delivered face-to-face with the instructor in the physical presence of students. This is true even when some instructional activities are conducted using web-based technology (always synchronous).
  • Internet Courses (online) – 100% of the instruction is delivered online. They usually have structured deadlines and due dates that must be followed. Courses may have proctored testing, but instruction is delivered online (can be synchronous or asynchronous).
  • Hybrid Courses (both online and in the classroom) – 51% – 99% of instruction is delivered online (can be synchronous or asynchronous).  
  • Blended Courses (both online and in the classroom) – 50% or less of instruction is delivered online (can be synchronous or asynchronous). Depending on the seated time, this could be as little as an assignment per week.
  • HyFlex Courses  (flexible options) – HyFlex is a multimodal instructional delivery method where the college has the option to deliver the online portion of a curriculum course synchronously, asynchronously, or both as long as 100% of the instruction is offered face-to-face, with the instructor in a physical classroom. Students may choose to attend the regularly scheduled in-person session or the online option on a session-by-session basis.
  • Correspondence Courses (self-paced) – Correspondence courses are part of a formal educational process under which the institution provides instructional materials, by mail or electronic transmission, including examinations on the materials, to students separated from the instructor. Interaction between the instructor and the student is limited, is not regular and substantive, and is primarily initiated by the student; courses are typically self-paced.
