Advising for Distance Education Courses
Distance Education Mission Statement
Distance learning is defined as the interaction of learner and instructor that occurs when the two are separated by place and/or time. The learning experience is designed around the needs of the learner. Distance education at Mayland Community College shall provide every available opportunity for an individual to pursue education that will enhance professional and personal well-being. This form of education is a convenient and increasingly popular mode of delivery, freeing the learner from time and location constraints - constraints often viewed as major barriers preventing individuals from attending college. Mayland shall offer such high-quality distance education options as teleweb courses, Internet-based courses, independent study courses, interactive television courses, or any other means to ensure accessibility to College programs and services.
Accessing Online Materials
Everyone is welcome to access online materials at the workstations in the LRC located on the second floor of the Gwaltney building on our main campus in Spruce Pine, or at any of the workstations at any Mayland Community College location.
Some online resources are only licensed for "off campus" use by current Mayland Community College students, faculty, and staff. All online resources may be accessed directly both on and off campus by current Mayland Community College students, faculty, and staff. They will find links, usernames, and passwords under the “LRC” tab after logging into their LEO account.
