Introduction to Online Learning

A Distance Education (DE) course is a course that is delivered to you electronically. At Leeward Community College, DE courses are offered via cable television, Internet, or as a hybrid.  If you’re watching this module, you’ve decided to investigate online learning as an alternative to a traditional classroom. But what will this really mean for you as a student? Here we will introduce you to the world of online learning: we will show you how it works, debunk a few common misconceptions about online learning environments, and explore some differences you will encounter when taking courses online rather than in a traditional classroom.

Note to iPhone Users: These tutorials have limited interactive functionality on iPhones since iPhones plays all videos in their own full-screen video player. You can still play the videos, navigate by chapter and read the transcript, but for a fully interactive experience, consider using a desktop or laptop computer.
