telecourses

An alternative to the classroom style of learning are telecourses. Butler offers a series of 30-minute to one-hour video lessons, to complete telecourses. These videos are used in conjunction with textbook and study guide materials. Students interact with instructors and actively participate in learning activities in the scheduled class meetings.

These videos are used in conjunction with textbook and study guide materials. Students interact with instructors and actively participate in learning activities in the scheduled class meetings.

The class meetings are a required component of all telecourses and the classes are offered at a number of Butler learning sites. The number of class meetings varies between courses, but the average time spent in the classrooms is about 20 hours during a semester. These class meeting schedules are found through the links provided below.

DVD sets are available for purchase through the bookstore and the buyback policy is the same as with textbooks. The student pays a leasing fee of $25 to the bookstore. When the student returns the materials to the bookstore at the end of the semester, $15 of this lease money will be returned.

  • Telecourse students pay a $45 distance learning fee at registration.
    Because of the limited hours of classroom time in telecourses, attendance at each class meeting is extremely important.
  • Late enrollment (after the first scheduled class meeting) is not permitted
  • For a refund, students must officially drop within one week of the first scheduled class meeting.
