Stuck in line at the traffic light? Stuck in line at the gas station? Stuck in line at the store?
Florence-Darlington Technical College (FDTC) offers online courses for individuals who don’t have time to sit through hours of lecture. We cater to the working individual with job or personal commitments that don’t allow for travel time and long waits. You take classes at your pace in your own space, the FDTC curriculum is designed to be flexible and convenient.
Students who may be reticent to participate in a regular classroom setting may be quite “vocal” in an online chat or discussion group. For a self-directed, motivated, independent learner, online courses may work very well.
Before you dive into the online option, you should be aware of your own study skills and habits. You should not enroll in an online class thinking it’s going to be easy. An online course may take more time than a traditional class, and some students report that they find online courses more difficult.
If you are a good time manager and have the ability to self motivate for study and learning, then this is a very valid option. But, if you have a tendency to procrastinate, have anxiety about technology, or have spotty internet connectivity, this learning method isn’t your best option. Final grade distributions confirm the commonsense notion that this kind of learning is not for everyone.
Both the on-campus and online components require full participation. Students are expected to attend the scheduled on-campus class sessions and complete work on the online course site. Testing may be conducted online or on-campus.
