Red River College offers classroom learning, distance learning, and now a new type of delivery that combines the best of both worlds: a virtual classroom.
Led by an instructor in real-time, the virtual classroom (powered by Elluminate Live!) provides interactive education, giving learners the opportunity to collaborate with fellow students and the teacher.
Featuring two-way audio, multipoint video, shared whiteboards, application sharing, interactive recording, and breakout rooms, the Elluminate Live! virtual classroom gives students the benefits associated with an in-class experience while also enjoying the convenience of distance learning from home or your regional RRC campus. Scheduled virtual sessions are recorded and archived, so students are able to review past classes at their convenience.
Beginning in 2010, Red River College will offer eight courses, including five gold seal certified courses:
- Construction Law and Documents
- Fundamentals of Operation Management
- Values, Ethics and Issues In Technology
- Business Law
- Principles of Supervision and Leadership
- Residential HVAC
- General Safety
