Online Learning

An online learning course [with the registration section of 'OC'] is offered through a learning management system (LMS) (WebCT/Blackboard) and uses additional technologies to engage learners. These courses provide flexibility to learners in that online courses do not have classroom lecture hours. They allow students to learn in their own environment.
