Athens Technical College offers a number of e-learning opportunities. Many students find the online environment a convenient way to fit education into their busy lives.
- Online: Courses designated as online are delivered via the Internet. Completion of e-learning orientation and advisor preapproval are required before registering for online classes. ATC requires at least one proctored activity in each online course. A proctored activity is a required learning event such as a midterm or final exam or presentation for which students must appear in person and present photo identification (such as a driver’s license or ATC student ID) to verify their identity. A proctored activity must be one that is accomplished on campus as specified by the instructor. In special circumstances, students may complete the proctored activity at an approved alternate site.
- Hybrid: Courses designated as hybrid are taught partially online and partially in the classroom at the designated campus.
- Web-Enhanced: Traditional classroom courses that use the Internet as a component of the course are designated as web-enhanced. The web-based component of the course supports classroom instruction and may require students to use the Internet in order to interact with one another and the instructor, do research, complete and/or submit assignments, or take tests.
- Interactive Audio-Video Conferencing: Courses taught face to face at two or more locations at the same time are designated as interactive audio-video. The course is delivered by interactive audio-video technologies with the instructor teaching in one of the classroom locations and broadcasting to the other classroom location.
