Online & Distance Education Courses
The UW Colleges Distance Education Program offers courses to students at UW-Marinette using three different modes: compressed video, Wisline Web - formerly audiographics, or online.
These courses permit UW-Marinette to expand offerings and, in the case of online courses, allow students to take courses from their home. Computer proficiency, especially in the use of e-mail and the World Wide Web, are strongly recommended.
Online courses are described in detail at www.online.uwc.edu.
Course Modes Available:
- Compressed Video (CV): CV utilizes audio, computer, and video connections simultaneously. This enables faculty and students to converse and interact with each other's coursework while viewing each other in a real-time classroom setting. Note: There is a per credit technology fee for all CV courses. Textbooks must be purchased through MBS Direct Online Bookstore.
- Wisline Web (WLW): WLW links an audio connection with common web-based courseware. This enables faculty and students to converse while interacting with each other's documents and graphics in a real-time classroom setting. Note: There is a per credit technology fee for all WLW courses. Textbooks must be purchased through MBS Direct Online Bookstore.
- Online (ONL): Online courses let students and faculty interact with each other as class members totally over the Internet. Instructional courseware utilizes web pages, discussion groups, and UWC e-mail. Online courses do not meet at a particular time or place, but they are structured within the academic semester time frame and require class participation several times each week. These courses have different tuition, fees, and payment requirements; they are listed in our course schedules and at www.online.uwc.edu. Textbooks must be purchased through MBS Direct Online Bookstore. I
