E-learning responds to the students’ needs for flexible, accessible programs and classes. Online classes allow the student to complete course requirements predominantly away from the campus asynchronously via the Internet. Some on-campus meetings may be necessary depending upon the course. E-learning also includes hybrid classes, which meet part of the time on campus and part of the time online. Another e-learning format, videoconferencing, delivers live instruction with two-way audio and video over the internal campus network.
Academic support, library and learning resources, student services and technical support are available for all e-learning students. Contact the Distance Learning Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 352-854-2322, ext.1317.
Online Courses: Online courses are distributed through the Internet, and students who enroll in online classes must have access to a computer with Internet access. Required skills include basic word processing and the ability to utilize email. In order to be successful, online learners must be able to work independently with minimal supervision. For some online classes, meetings for orientation, testing and review are held on campus.
Hybrid Courses: Hybrid courses are combinations of online, videoconferencing or traditional face-to-face classroom instruction. A designated percentage of the class is delivered on campus, and the remaining percentage is delivered in the online environment. The percentages will vary according to the needs of the particular class as determined by the instructor.
