Conventional Courses

Courses meet “face-to-face” for lecture and/or lab instruction; however, some course materials/activities may be online and require some Internet access. Online components may include access to course content, course notes, resources, and assessments. Times and room numbers will be listed and provided in students' schedules.

Online courses are a good choice for self-motivated, self-directed students who need a flexible course schedule. To complete all requirements for these courses, students must have reliable Internet access via a DSL or higher broadband connection. Students may access the Internet through campus WiFi and computer facilities at the college’s library on the Morristown, Niswonger, and Sevierville campus, or anywhere else they have Internet access.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid Courses (HYB) follow traditional meeting schedules in addition to offering students the opportunity to complete a portion of the coursework via the Internet and eLEARN.

Students are able to interact in real-time with the instructor and students at the other sites via video streaming technology.
