About Distance Learning
Distance Learning is defined by the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) as:

“The acquisition of knowledge and skills through mediated information and instruction, encompassing all technologies and other forms of learning at a distance.”
Distance learning offers you additional options for taking courses beyond the traditional classroom. Distance learning courses teach the very same competencies as courses offered at a campus; they have the same content and they transfer to other colleges and universities in the same way that on-campus courses do. These courses can, however, require significant time management and self-discipline skills. Therefore, finding the right option for you is critical to your academic success.

Please take the Self-Assessment Test and answer the question Is Distance Learning for you?  Also, read the FAQs for the distance learning options and their FAQs. Feel free to contact us with your challenges and success stories.
 

Online
bottom

Online courses are delivered on the Internet using course management software (Blackboard). The course sites can be accessed anywhere at anytime throughout the semester. Students get their assignments and course material from the site and are given time periods (usually weekly) to complete their work. The instructor communicates with students through email, online discussions, and chat. Some online courses may require some on-campus labs or exams.  Blackboard FAQs
 

Live-Interactive Online

Live-INTERACTIVE Online (LIO) courses are delivered through web-based software in real time. The instructor presents each class online using slides, audio, and chat. The students log-in online from home, the office or on-campus during the scheduled course meeting time. Instructors may hold class session in a computer lab until the students are comfortable with the software.  LIO FAQs
