TVCC offers a Distance Education program as a convenient option for all students and is especially helpful for those who have demanding work or life schedules, live beyond commuting distance, or may be homebound.

Distance Education allows you the opportunity to advance your educational career when it is convenient for you. You can study from home and never have to commute.

Classes are taken and monitored through Blackboard Learning Management System. This program provides a web-based portal for students to access coursework, submit homework, take assessments, and interact with instructors over the Internet.

Advanced computer skills are not necessary; however your computer becomes your learning tool and must be sufficient to run current software. Your Internet speed should be fast enough to connect to Blackboard and enable you to perform such tasks as downloading instructions, uploading assignments, and taking quizzes.

Before you enroll to take online school, make sure distance learning is really right for you. Earning a degree online can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. But, distance education is not for everyone. While some people thrive on the independence and freedom offered through online classes, others find themselves regretting their decision and wishing they had enrolled in face to face classes instead.

Successful and happy distance learners have a few characteristics in common. Compare yourself to the following list to determine whether or not online classes are a good fit for your personality and habits.

Take this self-evaluation survey to help you decide if distance courses are right for you.

INTRO TO MEDITATION, MINDFUL/STRESS
This course explores various meditation, body awareness, and yoga techniques. Learning takes place through practice and study of how your body handles (and can resolve) stress neurologically. The skills developed in this course can increase the ability to cope with stress, pain, and the challenges of everyday life. Students will learn to deal with disturbing events with grace and composure and to become more aware and fully present and alive in the moment. A growing body of research points to the benefits of mindfulness and meditation for mental and physical health. Although these terms are closely related, they are not identical. Mindfulness practice is one of many approaches to meditation; and mindfulness is applicable not just to meditation techniques but to a wide variety of daily life activities as well. These techniques assist us to combating negativity bias: triggers for the fight or flight stress response. By using meditation, mindfulness, and other techniques, and by learning more about how to manage our stress responses, we increase our well-being and life satisfaction. Section with Low-cost Course Materials
