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 (LMS) 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 Search web page.
