Quality Matters at LCCC

Quality MattersLorain County Community College is committed to implement the Quality Matters standards for the design of online and hybrid courses, and we are systematically building and evaluating our courses based on these rigorous, research-supported standards. The Quality Matters standards assure that the online components of these courses promote learner engagement and provide students with all the tools and information they need to be successful learners. More information regarding Quality Matters may be found at http://www.qmprogram.org/.

The mission of the Distance Learning Team (DLT) at Lorain County Community College is to promote the delivery of quality instruction through technology at any time, any place. We provide students, faculty, and staff with the expertise and support needed for the creation and delivery of quality education at a distance through the utilization of institutional materials, programs, services, and resources.

LCCC Distance Learning courses offer a mode of instructional delivery where students and the instructor are separated, but they engage in regular, substantive interactions with each either synchronously or asynchronously using one or more of the following technologies: the Internet, streaming video, video conferencing and/or Interactive Video Distance Learning (IVDL).

Modes of Delivery:
Currently, LCCC offers Distance Learning classes in Online, Blended, and Interactive Video Distance Learning (IVDL) modes of delivery (defined below).

Online courses are delivered primarily via the Internet through the college’s learning management system. There is no required face-to-face student-instructor interaction with the exception of possible in-person orientation or on-campus testing.

Blended courses combine online and on-site delivery. Typically, the on-site time is 50% or less of the traditional class time, and 50% or more of the course is delivered online.

Interactive Video-Distance Learning (IVDL) are traditional lecture courses taught at one site and simultaneously broadcast via two way audio and video to one or more remote sites. Students at remote sites can interact with the instructor live via audio and video during the class.

Online Classes
LCCC offers more than 500 sections of online and web-blended classes every semester. If you are motivated and self-directed these “Distance Learning” classes can be a convenient way to receive your education on your own time.

LCCC is one of Ohio’s leading colleges delivering quality online classes. Many online students are adults who have full-time jobs and families. Distance learning is often most beneficial to students who are motivated, goal oriented, disciplined and are able to work alone. However, anyone can be a successful distance learner if they have the drive and desire to succeed. LCCC is committed to advancing creative learning opportunities: any time, any place.

LCCC’s associate of arts degree may be completed entirely via the Internet. Students can also complete an associate of arts degree by taking a combination of online, web-blended and on-campus classes. All modes of distance learning delivery have certain access requirements, and each instructor may have special requirements for his/her course section. If you are registering through MyCampus you can find these requirements in the notes field for that section.

Course Offerings
LCCC offers approximately 300 fully online courses in many exciting fields. To enroll, all you need is access to a computer with a full-service connection to an Internet provider. You should also have strong computer skills, including word processing, Internet, and e-mail. You can identify LCCC’s fully online courses by a “W” in the section number (e.g. W100, W660). At the start of your first online course you will have the opportunity to assess your computer skills to help determine if an online course is right for you.

LCCC also offers a growing number of web-blended courses for which students spend less time on campus. A portion of the course (e.g., the lab) is on campus with the rest (e.g., the lecture) delivered online. In such classes, the time spent on-campus is at least 50% shorter than a typical on-campus class. These courses are distinguished by a “B” in the section number (e.g. B100, B101).
