Distance Education

Northern College is proud to host state-of-the-art video conferencing systems! With four campuses and large geographic expanses between each, we often use technology to connect, meet and even teach classes.

Many program courses are facilitated by videoconferencing and e-classroom solutions. This means that professors can be in one location and students can be in many others. The benefit of course is increased flexibility for both students and teachers, as well as access to educational opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable.

If you have been assigned a class that will be taught by distance you will want to find out which mode of delivery you will be using. You may be teaching using the college’s videoconferencing classrooms, or via Contact North’s Centra e-classroom technology. Your coordinator or supervisor will be able to help you here.
