E-Learning: Increasing Your Learning Options

For many adults, distance learning, online learning, or as many are now calling it, e-learning, provides opportunities to start or continue your educational pursuits while working, raising a family, or when you do not have immediate access to a campus. E-learning can be undertaken in a variety of forms, but its central feature is that the learning takes place when the instructor and students are not in a traditional "face-to-face" classroom. Traditional interaction, whether between faculty and students or students with their fellow learners, is conducted through some form of technology. That technology, more and more, is the computer and the Internet. E-learning offers you options not available in on-campus learning situations and provides flexibility and convenience for a growing number of adult learners needing to balance work and family responsibilities. Learn more about e-learning, assess your readiness for it, review tips and tools for success, and search our inventory of courses and programs.

Blended Programs

Online courses are those in which at least 80 percent of the course content is delivered online. Face-to-face instruction includes courses in which zero to 29 percent of the content is delivered online; this category includes both traditional and web facilitated courses. A blended (hybrid) program blends online and face-to-face delivery and a substantial portion of the content is delivered online. The program has a limited number of face-to-face meetings. Be sure to check the on-campus requirements before enrolling in a program.
