    33% of courses will be offered on-campus

Midlands Tech pioneers new class teaching

Virtual, hybrid options join traditional in-person learning

The area's largest technical college is pioneering real-time instruction during the pandemic.

Midlands Technical College Tuesday announced details of its highly-revised course delivery.

Courses can be taken in traditional on-campus, virtual and hybrid online classes.

New virtual classes meet via web conferencing at set times with live, real-time instruction and classmate interaction.

Online courses are self-paced with due dates for assignments.

Hybrid classes are a mix of traditional on-campus and online or virtual.

“A normal fall at MTC would be made up of about 75% on-campus and 25% online,” said Barrie Kirk, MTC’s Provost.

“Based on student feedback, we decided a major shift in course delivery was necessary.”

The new virtual offerings will make up 45% of fall courses.

Another 16% will be delivered online, 33% on-campus and 6% hybrid.
