Distance learning is the way of the future for Fanshawe College's Goderich campus, which recently marked its third year of operation.
Fanshawe Academic Services Consultant for Huron-Bruce, Heather MacKenzie-Card says the St. David Street location is looking to further expand its live streaming into Bruce County.
She adds that Fanshawe works with the non-profit organization Contact North, to provide the streaming service.
Contact North is funded by the province, and is a partner in 116 on-line learning centres across Ontario.
MacKenzie-Card says the on-line learning experience is highly interactive, and gives students participating at a distance a sense of belonging to the class.
She mentions some distance students are a bit reluctant to take part in class discussions at first, but quickly adapt to the digital environment.
MacKenzie-Card says plans are under way to stream Fanshawe's successful Business Entrepreneurship and Management program to Saugeen Shores.
