Distance Education @ Oxnard College

Technology-Assisted Distance Instruction

In a constant effort to expand learning opportunities and access for our students, Oxnard College currently offers several alternative modes of course delivery through the use of technology. We use technology to teach in many different ways. We offer distance education courses, and we offer courses on campus in “smart classrooms."

 In the current covid pandemic, most classes will be taught via the Internet. If traditional face-to-face instruction is required, such as a laboratory, students will be notified and care will be taken to ensure the safety of all of our students and faculty. The Fall 2020 term will most likely be distance/Internet classes, with a few exceptions that require face-to-face instruction.

Distance Education

Oxnard College offers both hybrid and fully-online courses:

  • Hybrid courses meet partially online and partially in a traditional classroom.
  • Online classes meet almost exclusively online (some instructors may require a face-to-face meeting and/or on-campus testing).

The alternate modes of instruction in distance education benefit many modern students because of the convenience and flexibility in scheduling. While these courses offer non-traditional modes of delivery, they are still courses with the same demands and requirements as their traditional face-to-face counterparts.

Oxnard College uses the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) to provide students and faculty with the ability to watch videos, lectures, chat sessions, get assignments, submit homework and more. Students will need a log-on username and password to access their Canvas distance courses.  

Online courses require motivated students to possess the ability to work independently and the ability to learn from the written word. Students must also have good time-management skills and good basic computer skills (i.e. the ability to surf the Internet, send an email attachment, use a word-processing program like Microsoft Word(R), and navigate the Canvas LMS).

Students must have access to a reliable computer with a stable Internet connection. PC computers should run a Windows 7 operating system or higher. Students are expected to have basic computer skills, an email account, and experience with using a web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari) before class starts.
