Mission: To make higher education and training more accessible to the citizens and industries served by Florence-Darlington Technical College. Delivery of programs via the Internet, ITV, and other distance learning methods enables students to take curriculum and continuing education courses; to complete degrees and certificates; and to upgrade their job skills without attending traditionally scheduled, on-campus classes.
FDTC offers numerous distance learning opportunities. In addition to Internet courses, many classes are offered via Interactive Television (ITV). Instead of having to come to the main campus, students participate in live classes via two-way audio/video from the Health Sciences, Hartsville, Lake City, and Mullins campuses.
Distance Learning is the transmission of learning opportunities to remote locations. Distance Learning will allow FDTC to deal with barriers preventing students from attending daily classes at a campus-based location. The college intends to extend learning through audio, visual and data transmission to satellite sites, other public institutions, and business and industry via:
