There are two formats of eLearning courses at Delta College:
A blended course
requires both online activities and on campus meeting times. The distribution of course material, assessments, and interactions between professor-to-student, students-to-professor, and/or student-to-student(s) are delivered in a combination of both online and classroom meeting times determined by the professor. Dates for required meetings will be provided. This course may require that assessments be taken in an approved proctored location, online, and/or in the classroom.
An online course
delivers 100% of the material/content online. This course may require that assessments be taken in an approved proctored location or online.
Michigan Colleges Online (MCO) is a collaboration between Michigan community colleges that allow Delta College students to take eLearning courses from other community colleges in Michigan. If a specific course is not available at Delta College, you may find comparable courses through MCO at Michigan Colleges Online. Check with your counselor to make sure the course credit will transfer back to Delta College.
The eLearning Software (D2L) is used in both course formats, and instructor-student communications are via Delta College email.
Students must have access to a computer with a reliable Internet connection and have an understanding of basic computer and Internet skills to participate in any online/blended course.
