What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?
Online-based courses, sometimes called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:
Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet; there are no on-campus meetings required.
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.
