Distance Learning Course Types
Seminole State's online courses are delivered entirely over the Internet through a course tool called Sakai. They foster remote interaction among students and instructors and may include some or all of the following components:
In order to successfully complete an online course, you need reliable access to a computer with Internet access as well as a basic familiarity with "surfing" the Web. To learn more about Seminole State's Web-based courses, visit the Online Course Overview page.
Online/campus courses combine online course delivery (approximately 80 percent of the course) with a reduced amount of on-campus class time for face-to-face instruction, discussion and testing (approximately 20 percent of the course). The components and requirements for online/campus courses are the same as those for online courses, with the added expectation that students will meet on campus for a reduced number of scheduled class meetings. Contact your course instructor for more information about class requirements and scheduled meeting times, dates and locations.
Technically, hybrid courses are not classified as distance learning courses. While they do combine online course delivery with a reduced amount of on-campus class time, they vary in the percentage of the course delivered online versus the percentage delivered on campus (50/50, 60/40, etc.). In any case, the online component of a hybrid course will not exceed 79 percent. If 80 percent or more of a class is delivered online, it is considered an online/campus distance learning course.
Hybrid courses are similar in structure to distance learning courses and share many of the same requirements, particularly in the area of computer requirements. The main difference between the two types of instruction is the increased emphasis hybrid courses place on scheduled, face-to-face instruction. Contact your course instructor for more information about class requirements and scheduled meeting times, dates and locations.
