Distance Education Classes
Students at UW-Washington County have access to expanded course offerings through the UW Colleges Distance Education (DE) program. Computer proficiency, especially in the use of e-mail and the Internet, is necessary to complete DE classes.
Course modes include:
- Online (ONL)Visit www.online.uwc.edu for complete information about UW Colleges online courses. With online courses, students and faculty interact with each other as class members totally over the Internet. Instructional courseware utilizes web pages, discussion groups and email. Online courses do not meet at a particular time or place, but they are structured within the academic semester time frame and require class participation several times each week. These courses have different tuition, fees and payment requirements. It is the student's responsibility to access this site for specific information including all current online course schedules, deadlines, and payment information.
Wisline Web (WLW)
(Formerly Audiographics (AU))
Wisline web links an audio connection with common web-based courseware. This enables faculty and students to converse while interacting with each other's documents and graphics in a real time classroom setting. An additional technology fee may be assessed for WLW courses.
Compressed video (CV)
Compressed video utilizes audio, computer, and video connections simultaneously. This enables faculty and students to converse and interact with each other's coursework while viewing each other in a real time classroom setting. Note: There is a per credit technology fee for all CV courses.
- Streaming Video (SV)
SV courses feature recorded, multimedia lectures which are accessed via the web. Additional course content and interaction with instructor and classmates takes place in D2L, the UW Colleges Course Management System.
Textbooks for all DE Courses are available through the MBS Direct Online Bookstore. Visit http://direct.mbsbooks.com/uwcolleges.htm or call toll-free at 1-800-325-3252.
