Online and Distance Education
The mission of the distance learning program at Alamance Community College is to provide quality instruction through electronic technologies to enable students to attain their educational goals. The program allows a larger number of people in the community and beyond to attain their educational and enrichment goals through the reduction of barriers of time, place, and space. Courses provided via the Internet earn the same credit and maintain the same quality and standards as traditional classroom courses. Courses are designed and delivered to meet the regular course objectives.
Not sure what type of distance education course is right for you? We have several types to choose from depending on your schedule and specific educational needs. Online “E” – Course with 100% of instruction delivered via the Internet (Example: BUS 225 01E) Hybrid “H” – Face-to-face (seated) course combined with required online assignments/tasks. Face-to-face meeting times will be determined by each department. Students who register for a hybrid course must have access to the Internet and be able to complete assigned course activities online in addition to meeting on scheduled class days. (Example: HIS 131 03H) Web-Assisted “W” – Course is delivered face-to-face with a requirement that students have Internet access as a way to complete assigned tasks online. (Example: COM 110 01W)
