News & Events

Summer Semester, 2023

Distance Learning (DL) at its most basic level takes place when teachers and students are
separated by physical distance and/or time. Distance learning options make it easy and
convenient for students to take classes even if the student can't get to campus. These courses
contain the same content as the on-campus offerings but are often available in an anytime anywhere format. At CCRI, there are currently two course formats available through
asynchronous distance learning, one synchronous format and a blended format. 

Asynchronous Course Formats:
Online web-based courses deliver content and communicate completely via the
Internet, usually through the Blackboard Learning System course management system,
but in some cases, on remote sites hosted by publishers. Students are expected to have
access to an Internet-connected computer and basic technical skills.

Blended, or Hybrid, courses (in the context of distance learning) combine primarily online
content delivery with a limited number of on-campus meetings. It is expected that faculty
clearly state the required on-campus time expected of students in the course requirements. 

All in-person courses are Hybrid this means that while you will meet on campus, you will also have online requirements to fulfill. Please check your schedules closely and be sure to check with your instructor.
