• Distance Learning

    Distance Learning is a way of taking courses where you and your instructor may not be in the same location. Distance learning students should be self motivated and independent learners.

  • Types of Distance Learning Courses

    YTC offers three types of distance learning courses. They are:

    • Online Courses: Courses taken via the internet using our learning management system, D2L. These may be synchronous or asynchronous.

    • Hybrid courses: Courses that are a combination of online, lab, and/or lecture.

    • Teleclasses: The instructor is at a host site, and sent to various distance sites using two way audio and two way video.

    Students who decide to take an online course, or a course which has an internet component, should have access to a computer. All credit online courses will use D2L as the learning management system.


    The WEB-100 tutorial will help you learn how to navigate through D2L. We suggest you review this tutorial to help you experience what an online class will look like, and how to complete tasks required of online students. You may find that you are a good candidate for online classes.

    Current students may register for WEB-100 by logging into D2L, clicking on "Self Registration," select "An Intro to Online Learning Apps," and follow the prompts.  You will have one week from the day you sign up to complete the tutorial. The course is free. Depending on your computer experience, the course may take anywhere from 45 min. to 3 hours.

    Completion scores for WEB-100 are uploaded Monday - Friday at 8:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 4:15 p.m.

    For more information regarding how to register for WEB-100 and to view a tutorial, please click on tutorial.
