Ventura College offers convenient, cutting edge, online courses via distance education. At Ventura College, Distance Education Courses are hosted on the Canvas Learning Platform and provide students with instruction, announcements, communication, course activity, course materials, group projects, video, assessment, and more. Distance education is another way of providing high-quality education to students who work, and/or have family obligations that prevent them from coming to campus for classes. These courses are open to all independent, self-directed, and motivated students who are seeking to achieve their educational goals.
