Online Learning Options

Web-Enhanced Courses
Web-enhanced courses are a “brick and click" approach to attending college. These courses will combine face-to-face and virtual participation for the students. Two or three of the class meetings will be held “on-ground" while the rest will take place in "cyberspace." The advantage to this approach is that it allows adults to become acquainted with online learning before committing to an online course.

Predominantly Online Courses
Predominantly online courses offer a virtual approach. Students can attend classes at any time from anywhere, in seven or fifteen week formats. This approach also allows students more time to respond with much more depth and forethought than in a traditional face-to-face discussion where participants must analyze comments of others on the spot and formulate a response, or otherwise lose the chance to contribute to the discussion.
