Our distance learning (DL) program provides 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 and place. More than 65% of the college’s students enroll in courses that use DL methods. At R-CCC, distance learning involves four major types:
Internet or online classes (IC1, IC2, MIC11, MIC21, etc. class sections), in which all instruction takes place through the Internet. We use Moodle as our online course environment.
Hybrid classes (HD1, HN1, MHD11, MHD21 class sections, etc.) in which part of the instruction occurs live, on campus, while the remaining instruction occurs online through our Moodle course environment.
In Video conferencing (IH sections) or North Carolina Information Highway classes, students physically meet together in a classroom during specific days and times each week. Communication between the instructor and the students is achieved through video conferencing. The instructor is not physically on campus. If you enroll in these classes, you must follow policies and procedures of the instructor’s college, including start and end dates as well as course withdrawal procedures.
In synchronous courses, students can attend class in-person and online at the same time. Students engage in learning activities in real-time simultaneously, regardless of physical location. This method allows for greater flexibility in how students attend class, providing the interaction of a face-to-face class while being in a different location.
All of our online courses are designed for students who are prepared for college-level work. If you are interested in online courses, feel free to check out our curriculum Moodle site at https://roanokechowan.mrooms.net or our Continuing Education Moodle site at https://roanokechowance.mrooms.net.
And, it’s important to note that R-CCC charges no student fees solely associated with DL courses.
