Edison State Online courses at Edison State College are credit courses which are academically equivalent to on-campus courses. Edison State Online course allow students the opportunity to complete most of their coursework outside the classroom, and although this allows for greater freedom of scheduling, it can require more self-discipline than on-campus courses.
Online Courses: These courses are offered through the Internet and require that students have access to a computer and to the World Wide Web. Course information and assignments are accessed through the browser. Online courses include a textbook, on-campus sessions for orientation, discussion, labs and examinations. Online courses may provide the opportunity for interaction between you, the instructor and your classmates through the course Chatroom, Bulletin Board or email.
Blended Learning Courses: In this type of course, several modes of instructional delivery may be used. For example, a course may be delivered to the student through a combination of videotaped, online, interactive video, multimedia or print-based material. On-campus sessions will be required for orientation, discussion, labs and/or examinations. These courses may also require access to the Internet and include a textbook and other materials purchased from the bookstore.
Registering for Edison State Online or Blended Courses: This is how you know whether a course is considered to be blended or online: An Edison State Online class will have a campus code of EOL and the section number has a seven as the middle number. A student might need to come to campus for a proctored exam or an orientation, but the course will be taught completely online. For example, AMH 2010, Section 171 is an American History course that is being taught online. However, if the section number has an eight as the middle number, it is being taught as a blended course. For example, AMH 2010, Section 181 is an American History course that is being taught as a blended course. That means that the course can be taught up to 50% online, but it also meets sometimes in a classroom on campus. Professors each have their own timeframe for in-class meetings. It is always a good idea to contact your professor to see when the class is meeting.
