Online Programs & Degrees
Taking distance education classes is a great option for people who don’t have time to attend face to face classes, work irregular hours, or have other time commitments. Alvin Community College has different ways that you can take distance education courses: Internet (IN) An Internet (IN) class is conducted almost if not entirely online. Some instructors may require that students come to campus for orientations, field trips, or to take tests in an approved testing location. Students must have access to the Internet, as all classes are conducted through MyBlackboard. Hybrid (HY) Hybrid courses combine online learning and face-to-face instruction in a manner that reduces the number of face-to-face classroom meetings. Students attend a portion of the class in the traditional classroom at regularly scheduled times and complete the remaining portion of the class online using MyBlackboard.
