As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.
What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?
Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:
Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.
Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.
In a hybrid class,
you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times
listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.
Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?
Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.
