Distance Learning

Are you ready to learn from home? North Lake offers a comprehensive catalog of distance learning classes available online and on DVD. Each distance learning course is offered for credit, is fully transferable and is equivalent to the course taught on-site in North Lake's classrooms. Email and internet access is required for online courses; DVDs can be checked out from the Student Resource Center, L-240 (1-800-325-3252).

Since distance learning classes are the equivalent of traditional courses, all prerequisites will still apply. In addition, we ask that potential students take an assessment called SmarterMeasure that evaluates readiness to thrive in the distance-learning setting.

Entry Assessment

SmarterMeasure is an indicator of the degree to which distance learning and/or learning in a technology-rich environment will be a good fit for you. It will help you prepare to be successful as a long-distance student. Upon completion of SmarterMeasure, you will receive a score report which will not only help you understand your strengths and opportunities for improvement, but will also provide resources to help you succeed. Remember, this assessment is strictly for your benefit, so do take the time to rate yourself honestly. The link to SmarterMeasure below will offer full, clear instructions for first-time users.
