Distance Learning

Distance learning allows students, instructors, and course content to be located in different locations, enabling learning to occur asynchronously (independent of time and instructor) or synchronously (at a present time with instructor involvement). Our distance learning courses can stand-alone, or be used in combination with traditional classroom-based courses, or with separate skill labs/assessments. This flexibility of mixing distance learning courses with physical on-site activities is referred to as blended (hybrid) learning.
