Welcome - Students at Skagit Valley Colleges (SVC) elect to take online (eLearning) courses because of a variety of reasons including flexibility in scheduling, learning preferences, and cost effectiviness. The eLearning courses at SVC are academically rigorous and equivalent to traditional face-to-face courses. They are the same in terms of credits, learning objectives, competencies, content, and transferability. Also, the same policies concerning admision requirements are the same.
Course delivery format options
- Online (eLearning) course: All instruction takes place online. The expectation is that students don’t have to come to class and are not required to be online at a particular time. But, some eLearning classes may have few required class meetings (i.e: for orientation or lab activities)
- Hybrid course: It is a combination of face-to-face instruction and a significant amount of self-directed learning done online. The expectation is to master content and come to class prepared to move on with new content.
- Face-to-face course: Traditional style of class where predominant portion of instruction is delivered in face-to-face class meetings. The expectation is that the classroom is the primary place for instruction.
