Distance Learning

The Distance Learning Division office is located in the College’s Library. Credit courses in a variety of subject areas are offered using the Moodle Learning Management System and the Internet.

  • Internet Courses - Internet courses are delivered through the Internet on the Moodle course management platform. A link to Moodle is located on the College’s homepage.
  • Internet courses require regular access to a computer with a reliable Internet connection, a DVD-ROM drive, and permission to change some of the computer’s settings and to download software. Slower Internet connections may make on-line courses frustrating and taking exams difficult. Internet students must be self- disciplined and self-motivated. Some Internet courses have set deadlines for course work while others allow students to work at their own pace. Internet courses generally require more reading than a traditional class, so adequate reading comprehension is necessary for success.

Orientation for students enrolled in distance learning courses will be provided in a format appropriate to the delivery method of the course. Orientation for students enrolled in Internet courses will be “on- line” and will be available the week before the first day of each semester. Access information will be available the Library and Center for E-Learning. Students must successfully complete orientation by the first day of instruction.

The Distance Learning Coordinator is available to provide assistance and technical support to students enrolled in distance learning courses. The Coordinator is also available to work with SEARK College faculty in developing new distance learning courses.

Campus and community representatives who wish to schedule events using the Compressed Interactive Video equipment should contact the Distance Learning Coordinator. Charges for the use of equipment may apply.
