A revolution in higher education

All sixteen KCTCS Colleges are accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the recognized regional accrediting body in the 11 southern most states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia). KCTCS colleges are the largest higher education provider in Kentucky, offering students the opportunity to take individual courses or earn a degree at one of our many convenient campus locations as well as through our innovative online learning program.  As a pioneer in online education, KCTCS colleges have one of the most established and innovative online initiatives in Kentucky: KCTCS Online.

While online education isn’t for everyone, many students who cannot attend classes on campus due to scheduling conflicts, childcare, work or other commitments find that KCTCS Online makes quality higher education highly accessible, affordable, and flexible.  KCTCS Online courses require a computer with Internet access and an e-mail account. In addition, online learning requires a certain amount of computer savvy. Learners should know basic word processing, how to send and receive e-mail, and how to make attachments. KCTCS Online classes require communication with faculty and other students via e-mail or discussion groups, taking online tests or proctored tests, and submitting various assignments via attachments.

KCTCS Online offers two convenient online options: Learn by Term and Learn on Demand.  Both of these online opportunities offer numerous program and course options.  Students must designate a KCTCS college as the Home College, and the Home College accepts all system-wide online courses delivered by other KCTCS colleges.  The KCTCS Home College must have program approval to award the program credential.

What Makes Learn on Demand Revolutionary?

A revolution in online education, Learn on Demand offers both full courses (rolling out starting spring 2011) and bite-size classes. Bite-size classes are about 3-5 weeks long and are called “modules”. Learn on Demand full course offerings are 15-weeks long and include all modules required in a full course. You can start on a schedule you choose. Modules build toward complete courses for accredited, affordable degrees, certificates, and diplomas. While these offerings are primarily offered online, some require exams and lab activities that may take place at an approved location convenient for the student.
