What’s Online Learning?

Backed by OpenSUNY's award-winning distance education program, online courses at RCC are designed to achieve the same goals and objectives required for the regular classroom courses. RCC’s dedicated faculty are experienced and fully trained in online teaching and help students utilize the latest learning technologies. We provide academic and technical support to ensure that students succeed with their online courses.

Types of Online Courses

Full Online Courses

Students registered in online courses can access them anytime and anywhere through the internet. Using the ANGEL Learning Course Management System (CMS), students log in to access their courses, interact with their instructors, take tests, write papers, complete assignments and participate in discussions. Online courses have the same quality as on-campus courses and are semester bound (completed within the semester). Online courses are identified with an “S” at the end of the section number (e.g., ART 118-001S).

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid is a combination of online and on-campus meetings. Courses meet in the classroom one day a week and then meet another day online. Hybrid courses are taught using the ANGEL Learning CMS. Hybrid courses are identified with an “M” at the beginning of the section number and an “S” at the end of the section number (e.g., CSP 100-M01S). Hybrid courses are semester bound.

Flex Courses

A select number of eLearning courses have a flexible enrollment policy. Students can register for these courses any time during the first 12 weeks of the semester and complete the course within 15 weeks of registration. Some courses use the ANGEL Learning CMS to access the course content. Flex courses are identified with a "D" at the end of the section number (e.g., MAT*101*011D).
