Online/Tele-/Visual Media Courses


Online courses are conducted fully online using CANVAS, our Learning Management System. You can find out more by visiting our website (  If you still have further questions, please let us know.

  • Visual Media and Telecourses enable students to complete college level courses via DVD or through the Seattle Colleges’ cable channel, SCC–TV (channel 28 in Seattle). These courses are the perfect option for students with busy schedules, family responsibilities, or who work during the day.
  • Visual Media courses involve viewing programs on DVD's, reading textbook assignments, and completing lessons outlined in the corresponding study guide.
  • Telecourses are identical to Visual Media courses with the exception that students view the programs on TV at specified times.

There are no required on–campus meetings; however, some courses require students to take their exams on campus. Students who are unable to come to campus to take their exams may find their own proctor to supervise exams.


  • Tuition Information: State tuition applies. Covered by Financial Aid.
  • Additional Fees: $65 licensing and rental fee per course.

Required DVD's and due date schedules may be picked up from the Distance Education and eLearning program office (Room BE 1140) beginning on the first day of the quarter.  DVD's are available on a first–come, first–serve basis.  Course guides will be accessed online. Students who are unable to pick up required materials should contact the Distance Education program for alternative options. Visit the Visual Media Courses page for more information.
