A course that is taught through video broadcasts using cable TV or videotapes. Students learn at home. They watch the videos and work with a textbook to learn the material. A few campus meetings are usually required for this type of course. This class can be accessed from home or the open access labs at LBCC.
Keys to Success:
As some of the instruction in televised
courses happen out of the classroom, it is extremely important
that you will be self-motivated and self-disciplined to access
and work on course material without an instructor present that
tells you to do that.
Because of the fact that you do much of your work in televised courses on your own, at your own pace within assigned deadlines, it is important for you to manage your time correctly and allow enough time for yourself to work on the assignments to meet the specified guidelines.
it is important for you to be able to work
independently, as the instructor and other students will not be
next to you while you work on many assignments of televised courses.
As a lot (if not all) the work in televised courses is done watching TV or videotapes, it is important to feel comfortable with this form of telecommunication. You will need to follow the TV schedule, set your TV or cable box to the appropriate channels, and occasionally, as needed, record the programs for later viewing.
To complete the various assignments in televised courses, you will need to follow various directions. A few examples are: which assignments to complete and what is required to complete an assignment.
It is important to initiate communication with the instructors and other students any time you have a question or comment that may affect the outcome of your learning. If you have any questions or if you need clarification, don't hesitate and contact your instructor. Shyness in this regard does not work!
