Did you know that you can earn college credit at home? Courses via distance learning give you the freedom to take courses around your busy schedule and thus help you to reach your educational goals!
What is distance learning?
In its simplest form, distance learning involves the use of technology to connect a student with an instructor. The origins of distance learning can be traced to the use of correspondence classes in the early 1800′s. Since then, distance learning has evolved by embracing other technological developments — the telegraph, radio, television, satellite, and today, the Internet — to deliver education to learners whenever and wherever they are.
Through distance learning, you can take REAL college courses that carry the same college credit as on-campus courses. You can register for a class just as you would for an on-campus course. And best of all, the courses are fully accredited and they look the same on your transcript as on-campus classes. The only difference is in the way you learn. Instead of attending lectures or seminars at the campus, you complete lessons at home at times that are convenient for you.
Visit your local distance education partner to sign up to receive college credit for a telecourse by visiting their website:
