Distance Learning Delivery Methods
Cable allows students to take cable courses in the convenience of their home. Courses are either live or pre-recorded. In most cable courses, there will be an online component for outside class communication, material distribution and assignments.
Interactive Video (ITV)
ITV allows students to take a course from one location while the instructor teaches from another. Class meetings are held at a specific time and place (synchronous). Both instructor and students can see and hear each other, simulating a face-to-face class environment. In most ITV courses, there will be an online component for outside class communication, material distribution and assignments.
The Internet allows students to take a course from home using a personal computer. Depending on the online course, students may be required to log in at a specific day and time (synchronous) or at anytime (asynchronous).
