NMJC Distance Learning Courses Offered to Area Residents
8/7/2008 11:01:54 a.m. - Hobbs, NM. Area residents and high school students have an exciting way to take classes with New Mexico Junior College this upcoming fall semester - Distance Learning Courses! NMJC is offering three evening iTV classes and eleven dual-credit courses, which include two online Distance Learning courses.
This is a good way for the members of the community to take evening college courses without the burdens of fuel cost and time expenditure," said Director of Instructional Technology Michael Rutledge. "They only have to drive to their local high school; the college comes to them."
Anyone can take evening iTV courses; they are designed with the student in mind. Since they are offered in the evening, even the working student can take them. Classes offered include Composition and Rhetoric on Mondays, US History to 1877 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Introduction to Psychology on Wednesdays.
To participate in iTV classes, students go to their area high school, where they will have a face-to-face meeting with their professor using the iTV equipment at each school. Students will be able to see and interact with the professor as they provide instruction from NMJC. For homework and questions outside of the class, most professors use WebCT to supplement their face-to-face courses.
Dual-credit course choices offered to high school students include General Sociology, US History to 1877, Composition and Rhetoric, American Government, College Algebra, General Sociology, Beginning Spanish I, Intermediate Algebra, Elementary Algebra, Interpersonal Communication, and Music Appreciation.
Classes begin August 18, 2008, so the time to register is now!
