All About Online Learning
Find out more about how online courses work and the expectations of our students. This all-in-one document will help you get started and answer many questions commonly asked by students thinking about taking an online course.
Since 1998, Delaware County Community College has offered the flexibility, convenience and accessibility of online and hybrid (a blend of classroom and online) courses through its online learning program. Choose from over 100 online and 40 hybrid courses offered within most academic disciplines.
Classes Anytime, Anywhere
Online courses are delivered through WebStudy, a management system that allows students 24-7 access to classes and technical support. These handy courses offer students the opportunity to learn within the dynamic online environment that is becoming more and more popular in the fields of higher education and business. Students enjoy a high level of collaboration, and a robust individual and group learning experience.
Please Note: Some online courses have an in-person orientation; others may require students take their exams on campus and in person.
Online courses offered by Delaware County Community College adhere to the same policies, procedures and rigorous academic standards as campus-based courses and require students to dedicate consistent study times to each course.
Online courses can assist students who are looking to accelerate their degree completion time, learn new skills, seek a promotion, or a new job all while managing their critical life responsibilities.
Students who enroll in an online course will be mailed a welcome letter about one week before the start of each semester. The welcome letter will provide contact information and explain how and when to get started.
Hybrid courses combine both online and classroom environments and require students to attend in-person classes on a regular basis, typically 1.5 hours per week (instead of the typical 3 hours of classroom time per week). The rest of the weekly lesson plan is conveniently conducted online. Students must complete both in class andonline assessments to pass a hybrid course. Students should carefully review the syllabus of the class for requirements and grading policies.
Online Course Success
Successful online students are typically self-motivated, active participants who are able to manage their study environments closely. Students need to remember that all online courses have due dates for assignments, forums, quizzes and exams, so you must adjust your study habits and preparation time to meet these deadlines.
To succeed in an online course, students should possess a fundamental level of computer literacy, including the ability to browse the Internet and do basic word processing, downloading and e-mail. Students will have access to online tutorials, which are designed to familiarize new students with the online learning environment. In addition, you can always seek help by contacting or stopping by the Online Learning office (contact information above).
