Penn State York Offers Courses Beginning in October
Adult learners interested in enrolling in a credit program still have time to take a course this fall at Penn State York. Two courses are being offered through the Video Learning Network (VLN) and the other is a blended course combining in-person instruction with online work. All three courses are being offered in an accelerated seven-week format and are offered once a week from 6-9 p.m. Credits earned can be applied toward a certificate or degree program.
The two VLN courses are taught in a convenient format combining face-to-face sessions with video conferences and online instruction by Penn State instructors. The VLN was created by the Penn State World Campus as a way to give adult learners easy access to a Penn State degree. Offering courses in this format also will help ensure that courses remain open by aggregating learners at multiple sites.
VLN classrooms are equipped with high-definition viewing screens, document cameras and other technologies for live interaction among faculty and students at the course origination site and up to three other sites.
Introduction to selling techniques (MKTG 220) begins Oct. 17 and meets on Mondays through Dec. 5; introduction to visual arts (ART 001) begins Oct. 19 and meets on Wednesdays through Dec. 10; and introduction to business information systems (MIS 204) begins Oct. 19 and meets on Wednesdays through Dec. 7.
