Credit Course Offerings

Online Credit Courses

Online/distance delivery courses allow for flexibility in our programs and decreases barriers to higher education for those who are place bound or with time constraints. These online offerings will allow us to promote ATI to underrepresented populations in Ohio.

Online/Distance Learning courses come in a variety of forms: online, blended (hybrid), and synchronous online.  Below are brief descriptions of these types of distance courses.

  • Online – Instruction for the course is completely online with students interacting with each other and their professor using online technologies. These courses can also have laboratory exercises which often entail students receiving kits to do the laboratory exercises at home.
  • Blended (hybrid) – This is a course with online and face-to-face sessions.  These are often seen in courses with laboratories where the lecture portion is online and the laboratories are face-to-face at specified days/times.
  • Synchronous Online – In these courses the instructor is lecturing to students in a face-to-face lecture room at the same time as students logged in online.  The online student will be able to hear, see and participate in the lecture. The online students are expected to participate in the lecture at the same time as the face-to-face students.  These courses can also include other online components.

Before you enroll in an online/distance course you will need to:

  • Complete the Online Readiness Assessment
  • Consult with your advisor
  • Make sure you have the appropriate technology and skills required for the course
