What is Distance Learning
Distance education means instruction in which the instructor and student are separated
by distance and interact through the assistance of technology. Distance Learning
provides educational opportunities that are not limited to the time and space constraints
of traditional classes.
Online instructors utilize a wide variety of tools such as online lectures, assignments,
tests, discussion forums, and streaming video. Our online courses are offered online
through a course learning management system (CMS) called Blackboard Learn. Instructors
may also use additional software and websites, depending on the course. Details and
special requirements for each course can be found by clicking the CRN link on the
online Class Schedule Search web page.

Computer Science Student
The first engineering class I took at Allan Hancock College was really challenging for me, but I thanked the counselor who showed me the way to the MESA program. There I was overwhelmed by all the resources offered and especially by all the students taking the same classes. Study groups with MESA students really made it easier for me to achieve. I am happy to say that I made it this far not only because of my determination to achieve a higher education, but also because of the wonderful people that I met at Hancock who encourage students to go the extra mile and accomplish their dreams.
