Online Students

Enjoy the convenience of online learning and have fewer trips to the campus by enrolling in one or more online (Internet and hybrid) courses.

Distance Education Definition: Distance education offerings at Central Carolina Technical College utilize one or more technologies to deliver instruction to students who are separated from the instructor by time or distance. These methods may include the use of electronic learning management systems for online and hybrid delivery of courses and/or Web or videoconferencing technologies. Central Carolina's distance education courses provide regular and substantive interaction between the students and the instructor, either synchronously or asynchronously.

All distance education courses at CCTC provide regular and substantive interaction between the students and the instructor, either synchronously or asynchronously, and provide the same student learning outcomes as its traditional counterpart. It should be noted that distance education courses are recommended for students who possess the requisite technology skills and personal learning behaviors.

Online Courses: Online or Internet courses are taught online using our online learning management system, Desire2Learn. Online courses are designated by a "D" section. For example, ENG 101 D20 is taught online. An online section does not have a scheduled on-campus class, but you may have to come on campus for tests and exams. You will need to plan to spend a good deal of time online, reading, and completing assignments. You will access your online course through myCCTC or by direct login to Desire2Learn.

Hybrid Courses: Hybrid courses are a combination of both face-to-face meetings and online components. At CCTC, the most common scenario is a once per week class meeting combined with other course components completed online in Desire2Learn. Hybrid courses are designated by a "DH" section. For example, ENG 101 DH1 has both on-campus and online components. The on-campus dates and times will be printed on your schedule. You will need to plan for your classroom meetings as well as a good deal of time online, reading, and completing assignments. You will access your hybrid course through myCCTC or by direct login to Desire2Learn.

Orientation Schedule: Orientation sessions are scheduled at the beginning of each semester to orient students to online learning.
