Is Distance Learning for you?
Succeeding in a distance learning course requires a high degree of motivation, excellent time management and computer skills, as well as an independent learning style. We've put together a list of basic skills you'll need and a self-assessment to help you decide if distance learning is a good fit for you.
Distance Learning Classes
BRCC offers two types of distance learning classes differentiated by the class section number:
- Courses entirely online (except for one or more proctored assessment) begin with the letter “V” – V01, V02, V35, etc. Example, ITE 119-V01
- Hybrid courses that meet online more than 50% of the time begin with the letter “H” – H01, H02, H35, etc. Example, ITE 119-H01
Shared Distance Learning Classes
BRCC students may also take shared distance learning courses through Northern Virginia Community College’s Extended Learning Institute (ELI).
