Summer 2020 Programs

Types of Online Courses

Recently, due to COVID-19, SLCC had to move its face-to-face class to a remote class platform. We know this may have been challenging to some students. We want to help explain the difference in online courses in hopes this will help when you are scheduling your summer and fall classes. 

This summer, we will be offering our traditional distance learning courses in place of remote learning or face-to-face courses for our general education (Math, English, History, Biology, Art, etc.) offerings.  

These classes are more structured and have prescribed meeting times. We will use Canvas, our learning management system, to teach classes. We will have two types of courses: synchronous and asynchronous classes.

Whichever the case, both synchronous (S) and asynchronous (web) classes have their pros and cons. Please consider all the factors before enrolling.  During these times, learning is going to be different. We understand and hope to ease your concerns to allow you to have the best learning experience during a difficult time.
