Remote vs Online classes at PBSC?

Remote classes at Palm Beach State College

Remote courses resemble traditional on-campus college classes in that students must be (virtually) present at the same time.

Though they are conducted over the Internet, remote courses unfold in real-time, which is why U.S. News & World Report also calls these classes “live.”

Students must commit to scheduled class times and sign onto Blackboard on schedule.

During these courses, students will watch video lessons and slideshow presentations and even have virtual class discussions.

Online classes at Palm Beach State College

Online courses, on the other hand, don’t require you to log in to your virtual classroom at a specified time.

Students can complete their coursework first thing in the morning, before heading into the office; in the evening, while dinner is cooking; or even late at night, after the kids are already in bed.

They don’t have to stick to a strict schedule to engage in live classes or discussions, and the only requirement regarding when they turn in their work is the assignment deadline, not an arbitrary timeline.

Online courses are also referred to as “self-paced,” according to U.S. News & World Report, because students must work more independently.
