Welcome to Distance Learning at SWOCC!

Distance education at Southwestern provides you with the opportunity to take classes off campus, allowing you to work around your own work and home schedule. Using the Internet and our web-based Learning Management System, eLearning, students will receive weekly lectures, complete assignments, 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 learning is not easier, but it does allow more flexibility in your schedule, reducing travel time and bringing education to you wherever you are.  In addition to a variety of online courses to choose from, SWOCC also offers two fully online degrees: Digital Design and Childhood Education.
