Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC), as part of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), offers students the opportunity to take individuals courses or earn a degree at one of our many convenient KCTCS college locations as well as through our innovative online learning program. KCTCS Online has one of the most established and innovative online initiatives in Kentucky.
While online education isn’t for everyone, many students who cannot attend classes on campus due to scheduling conflicts, childcare, work or other commitments find that KCTCS Online makes quality higher education highly accessible, affordable, and flexible. KCTCS Online courses require a computer with Internet access and an e-mail account. In addition, online learning requires a certain amount of computer savvy. Learners should know basic word processing, how to send and receive e-mail, and how to make attachments. KCTCS Online classes require communication with faculty and other students via e-mail or discussion groups, taking online tests or proctored tests, and submitting various assignments via attachments.
Distance Learning = KCTCS Online and two great ways to learn online: Learn By Term and Learn On Demand.
