Our Distance Education program offers flexible and convenient educational opportunities through video and Internet-based courses.
These classes take place entirely online. (A one-time on-site orientation may be required). Most classes use Momentum, a Web-based course manager that contains your syllabus, tests/quizzes, discussion boards, and course content. They may use online or proctored testing.
Web class section numbers are designated with a “W” – ex: ENGL 1010-W01.
These are very similar to our regular Web classes, except that your instructor may be from another Tennessee college or university. It is possible to get an entire degree by taking these courses as part of the Regents Online Degree Program (RODP). There is an additional fee associated with these courses. They may use online or proctored testing.
RODP class section numbers are designated with a “R” – ex: ENGL 1010-R50.
These classes are a combination of Web and face-to-face meetings. They may use online or proctored testing.
Hybrid class section numbers are designated with an “H” – ex: ENGL 1010-H01.
These classes take advantage of video conferencing technology to bring multiple Roane State campuses together at once. For example, your instructor may be at the main campus, but you and several of your classmates may be sitting in a classroom at the Loudon County Center.
IDEA class section numbers are designated with a “T” – ex: ENGL 1010-T01.
These fast-paced classes typically meet only one night a week, but there are three sessions of these courses to a term.
Accelerated class section numbers are designated with an “Z” – ex: ENGL 1010-Z01.
