Three types of online classes are offered at Montana Tech:

  • 100% Online - anytime, anywhere.  These classes have no face-to-face interaction between students and instructors.
    Example:  All assignments, discussions, activities do you not require you to be at a certain place at a certain time.  Some instructors may require you to arrange for a proctor for quizzes and exams.  Refer to your indivudual course for specific requirements.
  • Blended - a mix between online and face-to-face.  While some face-to-face time is required, it is reduced when compared to the equivalent credit classroom course.
    Example:  You may have to attend class, say, one hour per week with the remaining coursework completed online.  Refer to the individual course requirements.
  • Video Conferencing - scheduled time, anywhere.  The course is offered through scheduled interactive video and/or desktop conferencing.
    Example:  You have to meet at a scheduled time, but videoconferencing methods such as Wimba are used instead of meeting in a classroom.  Wimba allows class participants to see and/or hear one another.
