eLearning Course Formats
There are two formats of eLearning courses at Delta College: Online courses that are done almost entirely online and Blended courses that combine in-class lectures and online content.
A Blended course is a course designed with both required Internet and required traditional face-to-face meeting times. The distribution of course material/content, interactions with instructor and other students, as well as all assessments are delivered in some combination of Internet and face-to-face communications. Each hybrid course will have at least one required face-to-face meeting other than orientation and will have less seat time than a face-to-face section.
An Online course is a course designed to deliver 100% of the course material/content, assessments other than proctored exams and required interactions with instructor and other students exclusively through the Internet.
Both formats use the Delta College course management system, eLearning, and Delta College email for instructor-student communication. Before starting an eLearning course, make sure you have an up-to-date Delta College username and password, as this will be needed to access eLearning and email.
Students must have access to a computer with a reliable Internet connection and have an understanding of basic computer and Internet skills to participate in any eLearning course.
