More about Online/Distance Learning

Also called distance learning, online programs are a great alternative to taking courses in a traditional classroom setting. To achieve the best results in a distance learning course, students must be able to work independently with little or no supervision. The distance learning courses are no different from the regular courses taught on campus in the amount of time it takes to do the lessons and assignments. Students have ample opportunities to interact with the instructor and other students through electronic means. Students must be well organized and have a basic understanding of computer functions to be successful in distance learning courses.

* Course availability may vary by semester and be dependent on enrollment. Courses are subject to change. Students are encouraged to consult their faculty advisers regarding available courses.*


Proctoring Requirement

Students enrolled in distance education courses are required to participate in at least one proctored event per course (i.e. exams, lab assignments, presentations, etc.). A proctored event is one that is supervised by an approved, neutral person (proctor) who ensures the identity of the test taker and the integrity of the test taking environment.

In order to verify student identity and ensure academic integrity, students enrolled in distance education courses (i.e., online or hybrid courses delivered with more than 50% of course online) are required to participate in at least one proctored graded event per course.

Georgia Piedmont Technical College strongly encourages students to take advantage of the instructor-scheduled proctored events which are listed on the course syllabi.

However, in the event extenuating circumstances prevent the student from participating in the instructor-scheduled event, the following options are available at the discretion of the instructor. It is the student’s responsibility to make the appropriate arrangements upon receiving instructor approval.

There is no cost for instructor-scheduled proctored events.

Any costs or fees associated with alternative proctoring options are paid by the student.

Arrange an appointment with an instructor-approved proctor. Approved proctors include persons who are not related to the student:

  1. A faculty member or administrator of an regionally-accredited university or college
  2. A school superintendent, principal, or counselor
  3. A librarian
  4. A commissioned officer whose rank is higher than the student’s own (for students in the military only)
  5. Have the event proctored by a faculty or administrator at another Technical College.
