You may hear people say that online learning courses are easier than traditional on-campus courses. At Central Wyoming College, we strive to ensure that our distance learning classes provide you the same quality and benefits as our on-campus classes. At the same time, we endeavor to make the distance learning experience flexible and simple.
Like a traditional class, online learning courses require the same dedication and self-discipline to succeed. You still have to follow a syllabus, read the textbook and other class reading materials, hand in your writing and research assignments on time online, and do well on any online quizzes and exams required for course completion. Time management is important for students enrolled in online courses, and you can expect to budget 3 to 12 hours a week per class.
Instructors and students communicate through online discussion forums, phone and e-mail. All CWC students are issued an email address and are encouraged to use it.
We offer a variety of distance education credit courses every semester and they vary in length.
