RACC recognizes the conveniences that online learning offers many students and has a variety of courses available. Like traditional courses (mouse-over info), online courses (mouse-over info) are facilitated by an instructor and are interactive. Online courses allows students pursuing an associate degree to complete some or all of the requirements without coming onto campus.
Online courses use a variety of different technologies through the Internet to bring the class to you--wherever you are! This allows you, the student, to take a class without having to come onto campus.
Hybrid courses (mouse-over info) use a combination of online technologies and face-to-face instruction. In a hybrid course, the time spent in the classroom is reduced while online instruction is used to meet learning objectives.
While online courses are convenient, they are not for everyone. Many times, students believe online courses are easier than traditional courses because you don't have to come to campus. However, online courses can be much harder, as you need to have excellent time management skills and the discipline to keep up with assignments. In addition, you need to have the confidence that you can succeed as an online student!
