How are e-learning courses different from traditional classes?

CF offers three primary types of e-learning offerings:

  • Online courses are conducted primarily via the Internet, although some have required proctored exams.
  • Hybrid courses blend online instruction with a traditional classroom experience. A typical hybrid course will meet on campus one time per week and the remainder of the content will be delivered online.
  • Live-Online courses have scheduled online meeting times, usually through Zoom. Faculty will conduct instruction and moderate interaction live and most assignments will be submitted through Canvas.

Do e-learning courses cost the same as traditional courses?

Hybrid course fees are exactly the same as those of a traditional course. Online courses charge a $10 per credit e-learning fee, in addition to standard tuition and fees.

What technology do I need to complete an e-learning course?

E-learning courses may be completed using almost any computer running a recent version of any of the major web browsers. Mobile applications are available free of charge, for iOS and Android devices. Many E-Learning courses require proctored examinations. You will need access to a webcam and microphone to complete them. If you do not have one and cannot get one for yourself, contact the Ocala Learning Resource Center to check one out.

Who teaches e-learning courses?

E-learning courses are taught by credentialed faculty members, many of whom also teach traditional classes

What is the academic workload like in an e-learning course?

Online and hybrid courses are designed to be academically equivalent to traditional courses. Students often report spending more time on e-learning courses because of the self-directed nature of the instruction. This increase in time is offset by the flexibility offered, especially in online courses.
