All classes, regardless of location, type or format will have a Moodle Course shell that can be used for communication with students, posting of materials and other instructional items. This shell will be made available to students at 8:00am on the first day of your class. Students will automatically be enrolled in your Moodle course shell a few days prior to the first day of the term.
Seat-based classes are traditional classroom-based courses with no outside computer requirement.
Web-enhanced Instruction will be delivered primarily using traditional classroom instruction but will be enhanced through the use of online or other electronic media. Web-enhanced courses allow students (at the discretion of the instructor) to complete a portion of the course requirements electronically. This amount must not exceed 50% of your class time.
A hybrid course is one in which a substantial amount (more than 50% of class meeting times) will be completed online via Moodle and e-mail. Students may be required to come to campus on designated dates and times.
Online / Web-Centered
Online / web-centered instruction will be delivered online / over the World Wide Web. A web-centered course is actively led and monitored by the instructor via the Internet. Web-centered courses do not require on-campus lecture time.

This five-year program offers students the opportunity to concurrently earn a high school diploma and an Associate’s Degree or technical certificate.
