What is Distance Learning?

Distance Learning or Online courses at Wallace Community College have the same state requirements and learning outcomes as classes offered on campus; the difference is in the delivery. Instead of attending a class where an instructor provides a lecture and leads a classroom discussion, online courses are delivered over the Internet. Using computer technology, students and instructors can overcome the complications of time, geography, and career commitments.

The online courses offered at Wallace Community College are based on the same instructional outcomes and objectives as traditional on-campus classes. These classes require as much or more commitment as any class offered on campus.

They require dedicated, almost daily, online participation.
