Mission

Our Mission

In today's world, we have to continue learning in order to grow personally, professionally and economically and to keep up with advancements in our area of expertise.

The question is how we can accomplish this with our busy schedules. Adult learners are seeking an alternative that will accommodate their daily routines.

Seminole State's distance learning classes are offered outside the formal classroom. These courses combine independent study with guided instruction. Technology and instructors work together to provide a delivery system that meets high academic standards while ensuring the flexibility to meet each student's individual needs.

The eLearning Department at Seminole State College is committed to offering technologically-mediated teaching and learning opportunities for faculty and students. New learning technologies are producing environments in which learners are removed in time, place and pace from the source of instruction. We are here to provide support for students and educators so they can fully participate in these new and exciting ways of teaching and learning.
