Online Courses

Online courses allow students to access courses by computer through the Internet. Course requirements vary. Students are required to attend an on-campus or an on-line orientation on how to take an online course. Online courses transfer the same and cost the same as on-campus courses. 

Blended Courses

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:

  • Lectures
  • Discussions
  • 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. 

Video Courses

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.
