FAQ's

How Flexible is the Course Schedule?

eCombination courses at Platt College are courses in which some traditional face-to-face "Seat time" has been replaced by online learning activities.  A blended (hybrid) course is designed to integrate face-to-face and online activities so that they reinforce, complement, and elaborate one another.  Platt College currently uses a 60/40 split, meaning that 60% of the course is taught face-to-face, and 40% of the course is taught online.  Around 25% of the total program incorporates eCombination.

How Do I Submit Course Work and Take Exams?

Your assignments are submitted electronically through your online classroom environment — just like you would turn them in to your instructor face-to-face. Exams may be taken face-to-face or electronically depending on how your instructor sets up the examinations in the course.

How is Attendance Recorded in eCourse or eCombination Courses?

Online Learning Courses are presented in weekly module units. The weekly attendance period begins Mondays at 12:00 am and ends on Sundays at 11:59 pm Mountain Standard Time (MST).  Absences must be reported and submitted at the end of every module to the Registrar. Attendance is taken in every face-to-face class or weekly online module session.

The purpose of learning at Platt College is to maximize student access to courses through the use of web-based delivery systems that supplement face-to-face learning. Platt College integrates the assets of the college to provide a teaching and learning environment for learners comparable to on-campus learning. 

Web-Enhance Course

Web-enhanced (traditional face-to-face) class that uses a course management platform (My Platt College) to accompany the class. The eCompanion can function in a variety of ways, depending on the goals of the course and the desire of the faculty member to enrich his or her course. Assigned activities will vary, depending on the faculty member and the discipline. The time spent using the eCompanion does not replace any of the face-to-face teaching-learning process, but serves to augment it.
