Identification of Courses in Bulletin
All distance courses (those which meet at least 51% through GSAMS, WebCT, or other technologies) are marked with a D in the Section Code in the printed bulletin and on BanWeb.
Most distance courses include a description of the technologies used and other information underneath the listing in the printed bulletin and on BanWeb. More specific course info may be found at: http://www.westga.edu/~distance
Distributed courses (those which meet 50% or less through GSAMS, WebCT, or other technologies) do not receive special Section codes, but may have some requirement information in the printed bulletin.
Courses which meet off-campus through video distance technologies (GSAMS or EnVision) have numbers other than 01 in the Section code. The city is listed under Building in the printed listing.
Distance Learning Courses: These meet 51% or more of the time through distance technologies, which may include WebCT and/or GSAMS or related technologies.
Distributed Learning Courses: These meet 50% or less of the time through distance technologies. At least 50% of the meetings are face-to-face.
GSAMS: This classroom videoconferencing system enables live, synchronous interaction. The instructor and some students are at one site, while other students are at one or more remote sites.
WebCT: The University System's selected online course management tool. This internet-based tool allows for asynchronous interaction through bulletin boards, chat rooms, and student presentation areas. This accounts for the majority of the university's distance and distributed offerings.
Distance & Distributed Education Center: Provides coordination, faculty and student training and support, and evaluation of all distance and distributed courses.
WebMBA: Collaborative program among 5 universities, including UWG, enabling students to earn MBA almost entirely online.
eCore: Statewide collaborative program which enables students to earn most of core through online courses offered by various state institutions while remaining enrolled in one home college or university.
