How Do Distance Education Classes Work?
Distance Education classes are regular college credit classes that are delivered using internet technologies through our Learning Management System, Canvas. Distance Education classes typically have a more flexible schedule and require a lot of reading and interaction and communication with your instructor and peers Distance Education instructors will communicate with their students on campus, by telephone, or via email, to discuss concerns or questions which may develop during the course. Instructors will interact with students through chat rooms, discussion boards, and other communication technologies. Online courses require students to have access to a computer with an individual email account and access to the Internet. Internet access is available to students in the Santiago Canyon College Library.
Is Distance Education Right For Me?
Learning online may be a new experience for you. Distance education classes provide convenience by not having to attend campus, but also requires you to have regular interactions with your instructors and peers. These regular interactions will help to support learning at a distance. Students tend to develop a variety of healthy habits to be successful in the online learning environment.
