Welcome to eLearning
ELearning is defined as a formal educational process in which the majority of the instruction occurs when student and instructor are not in the same place. Technology is being utilized to allow learners to receive education irrespective of time and location. In most online learning situations the education is occurring asynchronously (i.e. the learners are not accessing the information at the same time it is offered nor at the same time that other learners may.
ELearning classes at Shelton State Community College teach the very same competencies as classes offered on campus; the difference is in the delivery. Instead of attending a class where an instructor provides a lecture and leads a classroom discussion, eLearning classes are delivered over the Internet. Using computer technology, students and instructors can overcome the complications of time, geography, and career commitments.
The eLearning classes offered at Shelton State Community College are based on the same instructional outcomes and objectives as traditional on-campus classes and will require approximately 6-9 hours per week during the semester to complete the work. These classes require as much commitment as any class offered on campus. They require dedicated, ongoing, and regular online participation.
Thank you for choosing Shelton State Community College's eLearning classes as a way of achieving your educational goals. The eLearning staff is available to assist you with any problems you may encounter. If you have questions concerning an eLearning class, contact the instructor of record who is listed in the printed schedule of classes.
ELearning students are expected to become thoroughly familiar with the policies and procedures in the Shelton State Community College Catalog / Student Handbook. A copy of the catalog may be obtained from the Office of Admissions & Records.
