Hybrid Courses (HYB) combine face-to-face classroom instruction and the convenience of online web-based learning, resulting in a reduction of the amount of time spent in the face-to-face classroom and a significant increase of time spent studying online materials. Students registered in hybrid courses must attend class meetings as listed in the JCCC Schedule of Classes.
Internships (INT) provide experience to students for on-the-job training with cooperating businesses, agencies, and organizations. The number of hours for each internship varies.
Lab Courses (LAB) are face-to-face classes where students perform tasks as directed by faculty. Faculty members monitor the activity and provide individual and/or group instruction/assistance
Media Courses (MED) deliver all or a portion of instruction through either cable broadcast or pre-recorded video lessons. The videos are available in DVD format from the Billington Library.
Online Courses (ONLNE) use the Internet and a Learning Management System (D2L) to deliver course materials and to facilitate student-instructor, student-content, and student to student interaction. To participate in online courses, the student should have a good understanding of computer hardware and software applications and the Internet.
Continuing Education Online Courses (CEONL) and materials are delivered via the Internet. To participate in online courses, the student should have a good understanding of computer applications and Internet navigation.
