Internet Course Guidelines
Internet & Internet Hybrid Courses
Internet & Internet Hybrid courses require students to have access to a personal computer with a modem along with an Internet service provider. The course website provides a center for interaction between the faculty and the student. The interactive capabilities of the Web are used for e-mail, access to course related links to the Internet, course materials and assignments, and a message board for students to communicate with other students. In the hybrid course traditional elements will be maintained, such as textbooks, class sessions, and examinations, either in class, or at the College testing center.
In Internet Hybrid courses part of the instruction takes place via a computer network, and part takes place in class. The students will meet as a group in a classroom setting on a regular basis about 50% of the time.
While Internet courses are every bit as challenging as traditional courses, they require a degree of computer literacy (particularly some basic proficiency on the Internet), as well as effective time management skills. The student must possess strong study skills, self- motivation, and the ability to work independently. The Internet Hybrid course is a fast paced course.
