Distance Education & Video Conferencing
UW Colleges offer four types of distance learning courses. They are:
WisVideo/Compressed Video (CV)
Compressed Video utilizes audio, computer, and video links simultaneously. This enables faculty and students to converse and interact with each other’s coursework while viewing each other in a real time classroom setting. Note: There is a per credit technology fee for all CV courses.
Videoconferencing Viewing Mode - Request one of these “continuous presence” viewing modes when scheduling your next videoconferencing
WisLine Web links an audio connection with the common web-based innovative courseware. This enables faculty and students to converse while interacting with each other's documents and graphics in a real time classroom setting. Note: There is a per credit technology fee for all WLW courses. These courses are listed in the UW-S Course Schedule and can be identified by their blue listing and the phrase “Wisline Web” at the bottom of the course listing.
In UWC Online courses, students and faculty interact with each other as class members totally over the Internet. Instructional courseware utilizes web pages, discussion groups, and e-mail. Online courses do not meet at a particular time or place, but they are structured within the academic semester time frame and require class participation several times each week. These courses have different tuition, fees, and payment requirements; they are listed separately in this timetable and at www.online.uwc.edu.
A portion of the learning activities will take place online, and time traditionally spent in the classroom is reduced. The classroom time will be reduced accordingly by your instructor. Minimal computer skills are recommended. HYBRID course are noted as section “38” or “39” in the timetable course listings.
Textbooks for WisLine Web, Compressed Video, and Online distance education courses are only available for purchase from MBS Direct Online Bookstore. Textbooks for Point-to-Point classes are sold in the bookstore on campusl.
