eLearning Defined

Scope of eLearning

SPCC strives to support the academic pursuits of each student regardless of their location. Therefore, classes at the college are offered according to the following delivery models:

  • Online: these courses are taught via the Internet, which gives the flexibility of accessing course information, submitting assignments, and participating in course discussions at a time and place that is convenient to the student’s schedule.
  • Blended: these courses combine online learning with required, scheduled, face-to-face instructional time. The primary delivery is online with a requirement that students also meet in traditional face-to-face sessions as determined appropriate by the College. The online portion replaces classroom instructional time with activities and assessments that are done online.
  • Web-enhanced: these courses are regular, face-to-face classroom courses that use an online course site to supplement instruction. Instructors will post the course syllabus there along with other course materials. They may use the online grade book to help keep students up-to-date on their grades. Or, they may require submission of assignments electronically in the course’s online site. Some others may do all course testing on the course site. All of SPCC’s seated courses are web-enhanced.

The eLearning (also referred to as distance education) staff support all classes offered at the college regardless of delivery and assist students as well as faculty with instruction-related technology issues. If you have any questions please submit them to distancelearning@spcc.edu; questions will be responded to within 24-48 hours.
