FAQs About Online Learning

What’s the difference between In-Person and Live Online, Online and Hybrid classes?

For the Fall 2020 semester, the majority of Phoenix College classes will be taught in Live Online, Online or Hybrid formats. In-person classes on campus are limited to only a few programs. With Live Online, you will meet weekly with your instructor at your scheduled class time, allowing you to interact with your instructor and classmates. With Online classes, you have no set time in which you need to be in front of your computer. You’ll still participate – only instead of in-person lectures, it will be through weekly online assignments. As the name suggests, Hybrid classes are a blend of both In-person and Online, and are mainly for Lab Science, Physical Education and Occupational classes.

Online classes are no more or less difficult than campus classes – you’re just spending more time on your computer. Support of your instructors tutoring services, academic advisors, counselors, and even our Technology Help Desk, we’re here to help when you need it.
