addition to offering high quality, traditional face-to-face
classroom learning, courses across the College utilize various
learning technologies in many different ways.
(DL) occurs when the faculty member and
students are situated in separate locations for a large part or all
of the teaching and learning time. Learning occurs through the use
of technologies (such as video and Internet).
OLOLC offers two types of courses that use distributed learning in
ways commonly called distance learning. The two course types defined
below may be offered synchronously (meaning all students are
online with the instructor at the same time) or asynchronously
(meaning students may pursuer course objectives without being online
at the same time as other students and the instructor).
blended course will meet on campus at regularly scheduled
intervals throughout the term, though a significant majority of the
learning and teaching will take place online.
online course will have no scheduled class meetings on campus.
The course will be conducted entirely in an online environment.
