Distance Learning

The Workforce Continuing Education Division of WPCC offers a variety of courses via the internet. With internet workshops, students can “attend class” at a time most convenient for them in the comfort of home or office. Each course comes complete with an online classroom. Students log into the classroom at their convenience to read lessons, complete quizzes and assignments, or communicate with the instructor and fellow students. An interactive discussion area also accompanies each lesson.

Internet courses differ somewhat from traditional classroom delivery. Although students remain in contact with others through course discussion, learning over the internet is essentially a solitary activity. Initiative and self-discipline are required of students taking these courses. Like traditional courses, Workforce Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) are awarded for successful completion.
