What is Distance Learning?

What is Distance Learning?
Distance learning classes never meet in a classroom. All instruction is provided over the Internet through Moodle, TSTC’s learning management system. Readings, assignments, projects, and tests are generally assigned and due on a weekly basis. The courses are not self-paced, although students can generally complete a week’s work any time during that week. Distance learning classes follow the same semester schedule as regular classes.
Final exams in distance learning classes must be proctored, so students either come to campus for the final or arrange with the instructor to have it proctored elsewhere.

Is Distance Learning right for me?
Distance learning classes are not easier than regular classes. They require motivation, discipline, and the ability to work independently during non-typical class hours. Students must be comfortable communicating with their instructors by email, telephone, discussion boards, and online chat sessions.

How do I register?
First you have to apply and be accepted to the college just like a traditional student.

For more details on registration, please go to Registering for Distance Learning classes.

What does it cost?
Students enrolled ONLY in distance learning courses will pay regular tuition, plus a $21 per hour Distance Learning Fee and ALL fees except Special Use and Student Union.

Students enrolled in an on-campus program who also are taking one or more distance courses as part of that program DO NOT have to pay the Distance Learning Fee.
