How Does It Work?
Students in multiple locations interact with the instructor and their fellow classmates using distance delivery methods such as cable, Interactive Video (ITV) and online.
Cable - 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. More information is available in the Cable Student Guide
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. More information is available in the ITV Student Guide.
Online – 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). More information is available in the Online Learning Student Guide
