    Distance Education

    Folsom Lake College offers a variety of distance education opportunities for students:

    computer

    Fully online classes
    In these classes, almost all work is carried out online (with the possible exception of campus orientations and exams).

    mouse

    Hybrid classes
    These classes feature a mix of online and on-campus work.

    TV

    Televised Instruction
    Folsom Lake College offers live interactive television (iTV) courses, which include instructor broadcasts from the main Folsom campus. Students may participate from classrooms at the Folsom campus, the El Dorado Center (EDC), or the Rancho Cordova Center (RCC). For more information, visit: iTV


    All distance education courses are held to the same academic standards as traditional courses. Faculty teaching online, hybrid, and some on-campus courses often use web-based learning materials, resources, assignments, and even some quizzes and tests, and regularly contact students through email or other electronic means. Students enrolled in any of these courses can complete some or all of their online assignments in one of the campus computer labs or from home or other off-campus locations.

    Class schedules will indicate whether a course is online or hybrid and if on-campus orientations or exams are required. For more information, please check the specific class listing in the online schedule. Each online or hybrid class section will contain a class note with a link to the appropriate information site. Registration and rules for these courses are the same as those for traditional on-campus courses.

    In order to be successful in online courses, students need to be self-directed, motivated, and able to independently complete and electronically submit assignments on schedule. Students will also need basic Internet skills and consistent access to a computer.
