What is Distance Learning?

Distance Learning takes place when an instructor and students are separated by physical distance, and time. Thus, technologies are used to bridge the instructional gap. Distance Learning allows students to take classes whenever and where ever they choose. 

The purpose of distance learning at Thomas Nelson Community College is to support the mission and core values of the College by increasing access to educational programs and services. Thomas Nelson Community College distance learning options improve accessibility by minimizing enrollment barriers due to time constraints, geography, job obligations, and/or family commitments.

How are Distance Learning Courses Delivered?

All Distance Learning courses at Thomas Nelson Community College are delivered via  Canvas as of Summer 2019, a web-based course management system. Canvas uses tools that help students manage documents, take tests and communicate with their instructors through discussion boards, video conferencing and email.
