Distance Learning at Florida Keys Community College
Distance Learning at FKCC refers to the method of instruction delivered through the use of technologies such as computers,
video, and the internet. Distance Learning courses are offered so the student and the instructor do not have to be in the
same place at the same time. Through the use of technology, students can fit classes into their busy schedules.
Distance Learning Course formats that are offered at FKCC campuses are:
Online Courses
– when 80 percent or more of instruction takes place over the Internet using the college’s adopted
online learning management system (LMS) where the student and faculty member are separated by time and space.
Online courses can be taken with few or no on-campus visits and use one or many different types of technology for
remote delivery of course materials. This may include, but is not limited to, Desire2Learn, the WorldWide Web, WebEx,
etc.
Videoconferencing Courses
- when 80 percent or more of instruction takes place using the college’s
videoconferencing system where the student and faculty member are separated by location. Classes and programs
taught via video conferencing can be received by and sent from any of our three campuses.
Hybrid Courses
- when 30 to 79 percent of instruction takes place over the Internet using the college’s adopted online
learning management system (LMS) where the student and faculty member are separated by time and space. Hybrid
courses have scheduled on-campus classes and use one or more types of technology for remote delivery of course
materials.
Technology Enhanced Courses
-when a course uses the college LMS but continues to meet in the traditional face-to-
face format. The class uses online resources to add to student engagement in the course.
