Distance Education

Distance Learning provides students with access to education through a network of various technologies.

Online Courses

Course information and assignments are taught completely online via the internet.  Students access course material from their personal computers.  Most online courses use Laulima, the course management and collaboration system for the University of Hawaii.

Cable Television

Class is broadcast over Spectrum Cable channel 55 or via MCTV live at the time listed in the Schedule of Courses.  Cable courses allow students to take class in the convenience of their home.  Courses are either live or pre-recorded.  Please ensure that you have access to these channels prior to the start of class.


Interactive video (ITV)/ Hawaii Interactive video (HITS) allow students to attend a course at a location other than the host campus (campus offering the course).  Students meet at the ITV receive sites to participate in classes.  Students view the class over closed circuit TV and must attend class at days and times listed.  Both instructor and students can see and hear each other, simulating a face -to-face class environment.
