DC3 is expanding their class offerings by providing more opportunities to students who would like to participate in online learning. In addition to face-to-face classes as well as independent study courses, online classes allow DC3 to fulfill a greater variety of students’ educational needs.
Online classes can help a student with a busy schedule still achieve an education and they can do it at the times that are easiest for them.
-Dr. Jennifer Krisuk, Assistant Professor of English
Dr. Steven Haynes, Associate Professor of History, agreed. “There are some students who will come to favor online education, especially if they are self-motivated or if they have difficulty finding the time to attend a face-to-face course due to work or personal conflicts.” Haynes added, “I believe that there will be a minimal effect on face-to-face enrollment as a result of the availability of online education.”
According to Dean of Workforce Development and Title V Ryan Ausmus, “Online offerings are not meant to replace face-to-face instruction, but to enhance our reach and service area. When you take on-line education, face-to-face classes, and independent studies courses, DCCC now has a little something for everyone. Online education is another tool in the tool box. We will now have the ability to support students in their academic endeavors in places we previously never thought possible.”
