eLearning (Distance Education) – fully online and blended courses
Distance education courses have been offered for over a decade. Distance education is comprised of either Internet (online learning), or correspondence (mix of online and print-based delivery) courses. Most courses are offered in the Internet format.

Fully online courses provide all the academic content and communications to students online and there are no on-campus classes to attend. Courses are structured with weekly readings and assignments that are due on specific dates. All exams are written on-campus, and students residing in remote areas can request to write at their nearest post-secondary institution. Mixed-mode courses that combine classroom sessions with Internet components asre also offered.

Fully online and blended courses feature a combination of multimedia (audio/video) and text-based instruction; exciting graphics and Web links; and include interactive assignments. They also feature online discussion rooms and provide convenient email access to instructors and on-line course evaluations.

All fully online and blended courses use the same textbooks, materials, and content as the on-site, in-class courses. They also coincide with the Registrar's timelines for start/end dates, petitions, financial refunds, etc.

Just as their course instructors will teach them; students can take these courses by using a computer from anywhere in the World*. This allows individuals the ability to do their work either at home, or in a coffee shop - wherever there is an Internet connection.
