What is eLearning?
eLearning includes all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching and provides faculty the flexibility of delivering some or all coursework to students via the Internet.
Linn-Benton Community College offers a variety of eLearning options giving students the opportunity to attend classes beyond the traditional on-campus experience. Your eLearning options include:
Classes where activities are completed strictly online. Most online classes are offered within the college's Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS that Linn-Benton Community College uses is Moodle. Just like in a face-to-face class, each instructor controls the course content, schedule and requirements. It is important to login on the first day of term and access each class to familiarize yourself with the course layout, content, and requirements. Because there is no set meeting time students are expected to put in both "in-class" time and "homework time" within their own schedules weekly.
These classes combine traditional face-to-face classroom time with online instruction. On-campus instruction time is reduced anywhere from 20 to 80 percent and the remainder of the instruction is completed online. Since not all of the instruction is done at a set meeting time, students are expected to put in both the rest of the "in-class" time and "homework time" within their own schedules weekly.
