Distance Education

Distance learning responsibilities of the SBCJC include coordination of the Mississippi Virtual Community College and online course offerings for workforce training. The Mississippi Virtual Community College (MSVCC) is a consortium of 15 of Mississippi's community colleges. Through the MSVCC, students may take courses from community colleges anywhere in Mississippi while getting support services from a local college. Also, an active partnership with Mindleaders opens the door to skills training courses in information technology, management, and other valuable areas at an affordable cost in support of workforce training initiatives.

The fifteen members of the Mississippi Virtual Community College include: Coahoma Community College, Copiah-Lincoln Community College, East Central Community College, East Mississippi Community College, Hinds Community College, Holmes Community College, Itawamba Community College, Jones Junior College, Meridian Community College, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Mississippi Delta Community College, Northeast Community College, Northwest Community College, Pearl River Community College, and Southwest Community College. Each of the 15 member schools provides a Distance Learning Coordinator (DLC) who handles local MSVCC operations. The DLC at each campus serves as local support for students who are enrolled in MSVCC classes. Some of the local Distance Learning Coordinators also serve as Directors or Deans for the system at large.

Famous quotes containing the words education and/or distance:

    She gave high counsels. It was the privilege of certain boys to have this immeasurably high standard indicated to their childhood; a blessing which nothing else in education could supply.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Small, black, as flies hanging in heat, the Boys,
    Until the distance throws them forth, their hum
    Bulges to thunder held by calf and thigh.
    Thom Gunn (b. 1929)
