BRCC is committed to serving students who choose to pursue their education through distance learning classes and to broadening access to those who find BRCC a good fit for their educational aspirations.
Distance education is identified as any formal educational process in which the majority (50% or more) of instruction (interaction between students and instructors and among students) in a course occurs when students and instructors are not in the same place. Distance education courses are defined and differentiated as follows:
- Courses entirely online (except for one or more proctored assessment) will begin with the letter “V” – V01, V02, V35, etc. Example, ITE 119-V01
- Hybrid courses that meet online MORE THAN 50% of the time will begin with the letter “H” – H01, H02, H35, etc. Example, ITE 119-H01
BRCC provides support to students enrolled in distance learning courses and to faculty who teach them.
