Online Learning


 

Online Learning

Online Learning is the acquisition of knowledge and skills through mediated information and instruction, encompassing all technologies and other forms of learning at a distance, according to the United States Distance Learning Association. The majority of the instruction occurs at a distance when instructor and student are not sharing the same time or space. While maintaining the quality of the on-campus offerings, online learning courses provide convenience and flexibility to students as they pursue their educational goals.

The delivery modes for online courses are Web and Web hybrid. They are designed to appeal and assist individuals who are unable to travel back and forth to class on a regular basis or who have work schedules that vary and are unable to commit to a weekly schedule.

Both degree and certificate programs as well as general education courses are available online. Each semester courses are listed on the Web site http://www.nscc.edu/academics/online-learning/. To assist students in being successful online, two types of orientation are available. Students may engage in an online Web orientation or attend an on-ground orientation. Orientations provide information on the course management system, course format, login procedures, syllabus, textbook requirements and other online concerns.
