MMC Online Programs Available for Charlotte Residents

Online learning provides flexibility and instant access to courses and programs otherwise beyond a student’s reach. Programs offered at schools located in different cities or states can be accessed anywhere there’s a mobile device or computer connected to the internet. Online learning allows students access to their dream programs without requiring students to relocate.

At Miller-Motte College, we aim to provide quality, career-focused programs to our students regardless of location or learning mode. Our online programs provide career-focused content in a convenient format. Our online programs also include a technology package as part of our online students’ program cost.

What is Online Learning?

Online learning is also called virtual learning, e-learning, distance learning, remote learning, and distance education. This learning mode allows students to complete their education over the internet rather than attending traditional brick-and-mortar classrooms. It also allows students to access course materials and submit assignments using tablets, iPads, smartphones, and computers.

Online learning can be in the form of synchronous learning or asynchronous learning. Synchronous online learning requires students to access courses at specific times. This form of online learning requires students to interact with instructors and lectures in real-time through chats or video.

Asynchronous online learning allows students to access coursework and material whenever they have the time. This form of online learning at MMC is deadline-driven to ensure students complete coursework in a timely manner. Despite being deadline-driven, students in this form of online learning can study at their own convenience.

As of March 2023, Miller-Motte College’s online programs are only available in an asynchronous format.

Traditional Learning vs. Online Learning

Traditional learning and online learning are two approaches to education.

Traditional learning requires students to attend brick-and-mortar classrooms for lectures, participation, and assignments. This approach provides students with a set learning schedule and environment. Students have access to physical labs, libraries, as well as face-to-face instructor and peer interaction.

Despite being the dominant form of education, traditional learning has several drawbacks. Working students or students with transportation issues may have trouble sticking to the rigid learning schedule. This could cause students to take time away from school until their circumstances change.

Traditional learning can also limit a student’s learning opportunities to programs and schools in their local area.

Online learning is an alternative to traditional learning. It can provide the same course content but allows students more ways to interact with and access course materials. It can also allow students to complete course requirements without worrying about transportation or scheduling conflicts.

Benefits of Online Learning

Online learning can offer students more program and school options than traditional learning. Students no longer have to physically relocate to access educational opportunities beyond their current community. It also allows students to access course materials and submit assignments wherever they have internet access.

Online learning allows students to overcome barriers which may prevent students from committing to and reaching their educational goals. Asynchronous online learning allows students to study and complete coursework at their convenience. This makes it easier for students to complete their education without compromising other responsibilities such as work or caregiving.
