Course Delivery

We’re taking full advantage of all that online has to offer, expanding it even more to provide students with a variety of exciting options. We now have online-delivery in three different categories:

Online Anytime – Traditional online classes in partnership with Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC). Students complete coursework and assignments via the college’s online course delivery platform (Canvas).

Live Online- Class has scheduled class meeting times with a live instructor, delivered online using Zoom. Additional coursework will be delivered online via the college’s online course delivery platform (Canvas).

Classroom Plus on-campus classes. Instructors also use the college’s online course delivery platform (Canvas) to deliver a variety of course content including videos, streamed or captured lectures, and other digital course content to provide students the opportunity to access content and enrichment outside of the classroom setting.

Lab-Based Courses – Courses with hands-on labs will meet on-campus for the lab. Lectures will be delivered via Classroom Plus, Live Online or Online Anytime. 

We've also created an animated video to help in explaining our plans for returning to campuses this fall.
