Five course-delivery options

At COTC, we know that you need flexibility to fit your education around your busy life and individual needs.  That’s why we’re offering more flexibility in course-delivery options than ever before. Whether you prefer on-campus classes, virtual or a combination, COTC now offers five delivery options – on campus, hybrid, hy-flex, remote and online – as we build on our commitment to meet students where they are.

And while some courses that require hands-on participation cannot be delivered remotely, if students don’t initially see a course offered in their preferred delivery mode, COTC will work to add the option whenever possible.

  • On-campus: traditional face-to-face classes.
  • Hybrid: a portion of class sessions will meet for face-to-face instruction with other sessions utilizing remote learning (e.g., video lectures, online discussions, or activities).
  • Hy-flex: some students will attend an in-person lecture; other students will attend the live lecture via Zoom. Hy-flex courses will also use DTEN technology, an immersive online collaborative platform that will allow students across multiple COTC campuses to enroll in the same course.
  • Remote: course is offered remotely as either synchronous (live lectures scheduled on specific days/times) or asynchronous (recorded lectures accessible anytime). 
  • Online: course is offered entirely online without scheduled days/times to meet within the college’s learning management system (Canvas) and/or supplementary instruction resources, such as online math labs or e-books.

Second-term accelerated classes

Apply Now

The popular accelerated class format allows students who did not enroll for semester classes to get back on track or start their degree immediately without waiting for the next semester. Students with responsibilities like a job or family find accelerated courses help them better fit college into their busy lives.

Most offerings are general education classes that can count toward an associate degree at COTC or transfer to any public college or university in the state of Ohio. Courses are offered in multiple delivery methods.
