Distance Learning at EACC is a convenient and affordable way to take college courses. The mission of East Arkansas Community College’s Distance Learning program is to provide college-level courses that reach beyond the boundaries of traditional classroom instruction to accommodate students who require a more flexible schedule. EACC offers a wide variety of general education courses through NET courses and compressed video courses.

EACC’s NET courses utilize Internet-based technologies such as e-mail, web pages, bulletin boards, and other online collaboration tools. NET courses provide flexibility for students who may not be able to come to campus. Students can access course materials online, take specific quizzes, and communicate with the instructor via the Internet.

With compressed video courses, distance is no longer a barrier to classroom learning. Cameras, microphones and video monitors make it possible for a teacher in another location to ‘step into’ multiple classrooms and provide first-hand course instruction to students who can see, hear and speak to the instructor and members of classes located at other sites.
