Distance learning at Polk State College involves initiatives to bring many Polk State College courses to students in such a way that the traditional barriers of time and distance no longer exist. This includes coursework delivered over the Internet using various technologies such as web-based materials and discussion boards, as well as courses delivered using hybrid delivery modes (a mixture of Internet and on-campus class meetings) and courses using interactive television with all delivery methods potentially making use of Internet-based supplementary materials.
