With the world changing rapidly your future has no boundaries -- and your education is a part of those changes? Distance Learning is a proud part of a Lubbock Christian University initiative that is committed to providing learning opportunities for those who - by choice or by circumstance - are looking for alternate ways to fulfill their academic and professional development goals. Distance Learning continually strives to help professors and augment classroom technology and content delivery to prepare students for success in an electronic age, a time when lifelong learning is essential and coping with change is a necessity.

Through its distance learning and blended programs, Lubbock Christian University offers degrees, certificates, and individual courses to students like you - in West Texas, across the state, and around the world.

 Admitted students can also take courses in dozens of disciplines for credit toward their undergraduate or graduate degrees at Lubbock Christian.

 Lubbock Christian offers courses at its conveniently-located campus in Lubbock, and also through an online learning environment available 24 hours a day -- giving you the flexibility to study when and where your schedule permits.

 Only you can determine if distance learning is the right choice for you. Convenience is a key reason most students enroll in distance learning courses. There are many factors such as your job, location, and family commitments which can make it difficult for you to take on-campus courses. While convenience is clearly a benefit, it is only one factor you should consider. The amount of time required to complete a distance course is comparable to that expected of an on-campus course. Other factors to consider are your learning style preferences and motivation, time management, computer and Internet skills, and access to equipment and computers.

Blended or Hybrid Courses

Some Lubbock Christian University courses are taught completely online. They are referred to as "Online courses." Some courses have a significant online component and are referred to as "blended learning" or "hybrid courses." In addition, many courses are Web- or computer-enhanced and use technology classrooms, components of Moodle or have online elements. Many courses which meet in the classroom for all or part of the instruction also use a class capture system, Panopto, which allows the instructor to capture the content and lecture of the class for review after class, or is prepared, in advance, for review prior to the student attending class.
