Welcome to Distance Learning at SWOCC!
Distance education classes at Southwestern provide you with the opportunity to take classes off campus in a time-independent manner. Using the Internet and eLearning students will receive weekly lectures, be able to complete assignments, be able to take assessments, actively participate in online discussions, follow web links to sites of interest for their class, and communicate, all in a virtual classroom setting. Successful distance learning students actively participate in class on a regular basis just like a face to face class. Taking courses through distance education is not easier, but it does allow more flexibility in your schedule, reducing travel time and bringing education to you wherever you are.
