Online Courses

Online courses allow students to access 85 to 100 percent of the course by computer through the Internet. Course requirements vary. Students may be required to attend an on-campus or an on-line orientation on how to take an online course or come to campus to be proctored for testing. Online courses transfer the same and cost the same as on-campus courses.  Online courses are recommended for students who have a flexible work schedule or who live out-of-state or out-of-country.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid courses are classes in which at least 50 to 85 percent of the course is taught online and 15 to 50 percent of the course is taught on campus.  Hybrid learning combines online learning with face-to-face learning in a traditional classroom.  Hybrid courses combine online and traditional teaching elements such as:

  • Lectures
  • Discussions
  • Group Work
  • In person activities on campus

Hybrid courses are recommended for students who have a flexible work schedule. 

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.
