The eLearning methods available at Prince George's Community College's (PGCC) are online, remote, and hybrid courses. These courses may also be accelerated—shorter in duration than full-semester courses but with the same amount of coursework.
The College's online course management system, Canvas, makes it easy for students in all of our courses to stay on track by communicating with their professors, submitting completed assignments, accessing grades, and more.

Structured Remote Courses

These classes meet online via the Zoom web conference tool in Canvas, at scheduled times with set deadlines and due dates. Students will access learning materials, assignments, and participate in discussions via Canvas.
Online/Remote and In-Person
Hybrid courses combine classroom meetings and online/remote instruction. Students enrolled in a hybrid course come to campus at scheduled times and meet face-to-face with their professors and fellow students. The number of on-campus meetings varies - some only meet once a month while others may meet every week. Other course work assignments, discussion, group work, etc. is accomplished through the internet, using Canvas. Students interact online to receive information about assignments, send homework, participate in class discussions, and conduct research.
