Evening, Weekend, & Distance Education

Blended courses are classes in which at least 75 to 80 percent of the course is taught online and 20 to 25 percent of the course is taught on campus. Blended learning combines online learning with face-to-face learning in a traditional classroom. Blended courses combine online and traditional teaching elements such as:
- Group Work
- In person activities on campus
Blended courses are recommended for students who have a flexible work schedule or who live out-of-state or out-of-country. See the SAC Online Web site at http://www.alamo.edu/sac/online/courses/ or the current San Antonio College Schedule for blended course offerings.
Video courses are college credit courses that are broadcast on television or accessible DVD. Students attend an on-site orientation, watch televised broadcasts, or DVDs, attend several on-campus review sessions, and take exams on-campus. Most of the course assignments are done by the student independently. Video courses provide flexibility for students who work and want to study at a time convenient to them. Lessons are broadcast on KLRN channel 9 (Time Warner, cable channel 10), and on Time Warner channel 19. Video courses are taught by experienced faculty. Video courses are college credit courses and cost the same as on-campus courses.
