Online Learning

Take Classes Anytime From Anywhere

Do you want to take a course, but you can't make it to campus at the scheduled time? The Distance Education Center at CVCC provides students with access to online courses and educational resources. You may take courses from anywhere with online access in a variety of formats.

Online Courses:  You can access your courses from anywhere with an Internet connection. Work on your courses on your schedule. Coursework will have regular assigned due dates, but you can access your materials any time of the day.

"Live" Online Courses: You will attend your courses online in real time, using Zoom, from anywhere in the world. Students may access the course from an off-site center. You will see and hear your instructor and course materials, and you can even interact with other students in real time. These courses have regular meeting times.

Hybrid Courses: Students experience live instruction with less face-to-face meetings blended with online coursework. Meeting times and requirements will vary, so be sure to contact your instructor.
