Distance Learning  

What is Distance Learning?

Distance Learning has to do with structuring classes in several nontraditional ways. In essence, either the instructor, the student, or both may be in a remote location outside the traditional classroom setting. MTP provides courses taught by an instructor from a location outside the classroom so students in the classroom can see and hear the instructor, the presentation, and submit their questions and comments to the instructor. MTP also offers courses that students can take online over the internet. Some of these classes are recorded in advance by the instructor and accessed by students from a computer. Pre-recorded courses can be viewed multiple times during the term, and instructors can provide handouts and opportunities to interact with them online.

Is Registration Different for Distance Learning than for Classroom Courses?

Only slightly. The difference is in the information needed to "attend" a distance learning class. For classes students take online, the receipt will contain the login information needed to take the class. It will include the web address (online classes are taken through a Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, etc. browser), and any other information needed to connect to the class.
