About Digital Learning

Digital Learning means that the student and the instructor do not have to be at the same place at the same time in order for teaching and learning to occur. This type of learning provides students alternatives to traditional classroom schedules and is ideal for working adults, traveling employees, persons with disabilities, shift workers, those with course scheduling conflicts and many others. Through the use of technology, such as course videos and taking a class via a computer, Digital Learning allows students to work classes into their busy home and/or work schedules.
