Distance Learning and Online Classes

The Extended Learning Institute (ELI) of Northern Virginia Community College is nationally recognized as a leader and has been offering distance learning courses since 1975. If you have a difficult work schedule or physically can’t get to campus, distance learning may be for you. Courses are taught online and require good Internet access, a commitment of time, good reading skills, and the self-discipline to study on your own. Some courses may involve participating in discussion forums or emailing your instructor.  Some courses require scheduled online sessions at pre-designated times using a microphone and headset and meeting software such as Blackboard Collaborate.

NOVA faculty and ELI staff are available to provide assistance by telephone, email, office visits, or through the mail. For more information about how distance learning courses work and a complete listing of courses for this term, visit the ELI website.
