Distance Learning at Edgecombe Community College includes those classes that an individual can take anytime and anywhere in which classroom attendance is not required.
The online Curriculum classes compare to traditional classroom courses:
- earn the same credit.
- have the same quality and standards.
- are fully accredited.
- have the same course objectives.
Student support services (such as the library, student services, and financial aid) are available without being on campus.
The classes are best suited for mature, self-motivated students who have good study skills and do not need to be reminded to study and complete their assignments.
Ed2Go online courses are offered through Continuing Education. These instructor-facilitated online courses are informative, fun, convenient, and highly interactive.
Ed2Go courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas (chat rooms), supplementary links, and more. All courses run for six weeks (with a two-week grace period at the end). Two lessons are downloaded each week.
- can be completed from your home or office, day or night.
- start every month.
- are 24 contact hours.
- generate 2.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
- require Internet access, email, and a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.
Unless noted, tuition per course is $65. Senior Citizens 65 years of age or older may take one course a semester free of charge (either a face-to-face class or an Ed2Go class). Teachers may get approval for the courses for teacher renewal credits.
At the end of the course, you will receive an official letter of completion from Ed2Go and an official certificate issued by ECC’s Division of Continuing Education.
