Course Delivery Options
Johnston Community College offers several options for online course delivery. Course formats include Internet, hybrid, and Internet Televised (ITV). All courses are equal to other courses in credit hours, academic rigor, and student requirements. For non-credit online courses, we offer over 300 courses via ed2go.
Internet courses allow students access to courses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via our Blackboard Learn course management system. All course activities, assignments, discussions and testing is provided in a 100% online environment. Students should expect to devote the same amount of time to an online course that they would spend in a face-to-face course.
Hybrid courses blend traditional face-to-face classroom instruction with an online learning component via Blackboard Learn. Students meet on campus for lectures, and complete online work independently away from campus. The goal is to blend the best features of seated instruction with the flexibility of online to promote learning.
ITV courses are delivered through our state-of-the-art videoconferencing equipment located in JOLT. Courses involve two-way video interaction with connections from other area college's, allowing us to offer a wider course availability to students. Instructors provide live instruction in the originating classroom and appear via videoconferencing at the receiving college.
ed2go online courses offer over 300 non-credit continuing education courses designed to improve employment and job-related skills.
