Distance Learning Distance learning courses, also referred to as e-learning courses, are taught via the Internet and may be entirely or partly online. Courses taught partly online are identified as hybrid in CGCC class schedules. E-learning courses cover the same material as courses taught in person. To be successful in e-learning courses students should possess a reasonable level of comfort with technology and have consistent access to a computer with a reliable Internet service provider. E-learning courses are for students who are self-motivated and are able to learn independently using online tutorials and assignments. Communication among students, and between students and instructors, is mediated by Canvas, the Learning Management System (LMS) used for online and hybrid courses. Each student is assigned a Maricopa email address, which is the official means of electronic communication between the College and students. For more information on distance learning courses and to find out if this style of learning is right for you, go to Dual Enrollment Dual Enrollment provides an opportunity for eligible high school students to take college level courses at their high school. These courses allow students to earn both high school and college credit for the same class. Classes meet at the high school during the regular school day and are taught by college certified instructors using approved curriculum and texts. The credits earned may be used toward an Associate's degree, and most can transfer to universities. Dual Enrollment courses let students begin their college career in a convenient and affordable way.
