Our myPCC eLearning courses are either fully online or split between in-class and online, depending on the class. These courses allow you to use a computer at a place and time convenient for you to access course content, participate in threaded discussions, and respond to assignments posted online. Your instructor may post examinations online or ask that you take them at the school. PCC’s online and hybrid courses are developed and taught by faculty to ensure that students have the information, academic experiences and instructional time necessary to meet course objectives.
PCC uses existing academic structures in the development of distance education courses and curricula. The college follows the Colorado state-mandated common course descriptions, competencies and outlines for any course offered, regardless of the method of delivery. An online course syllabus reflects the content and learning outcomes of the same face-to-face course. For every hour of credit, students must engage in a minimum of 12.5 hours of instructional time (15 week semester = 50 minutes per week, per credit). Students should have a computer with an Internet connection at home. However, all PCC campuses provide access to computers at various times (check your campus for lab days and times). Please refer to the catalog for information on prerequisites. Contact the course instructor or refer to the course syllabus for course requirements.
myPCC eLearning supports two options for online course delivery:
- Online courses (Internet based)
- Hybrid courses
- PCC Online courses are developed and taught by PCC instructors. Any requirements for face-to-face meetings for online classes are limited to orientations, internships, specialized laboratory work, proficiency check-offs or final industry certifications. All coursework is done via the Internet.
- Colorado Community Colleges Online (CCCOnline) is a shared educational resource of the Colorado Community College System. These courses are taught by instructors of the Colorado Community College System. All coursework is done via the Internet.
Hybrid courses are a combination of online and classroom instruction. In a hybrid course, a portion of the seat time is spent in the classroom and the remainder of the class is conducted online.
