Distance Learning at Rappahannock Community College is an education format (course, certificate, degree,or other) that allows a student to complete all or most of his or her program from wherever there is Internet access. Distance Learning courses receive the same credit as a student that completes the program on campus.

Types of Distance Learning Courses at RCC
Most Online Courses are taught via the Internet through Blackboard an online course management tool. All courses require a minimum of two proctored tests at an RCC site.
Hybrid Courses are a blend of traditional and distance learning courses. These courses will use a significant amount of time with course learning online and, as a result, reduce the amount of classroom seat time.
Interactive Video, or “I.V.” for short, courses are more like traditional courses. Class attendance is required; students and faculty interact over high-speed communication lines and televisions.
