Telecourses and TWAV Classes

Telecourses: Distance Learning via DVD and/or class delivery

Check the college schedule of classes to find out if a specific course is offered as a Telecourse or in the TWAV classroom. ETS produces and distributes many of the video courses. Course information and media are available at Educational Technology Services in 242 Goins Building at the Pellissippi Campus.

The format depends on the course. Call for more information - 865-694-6593.

Students may be required to use Pellissippi e-mail accounts to communicate with instructors.

Students must attend a scheduled orientation session, either in class or online to meet the instructor and to receive course materials. You will find the orientation schedule in your Class Schedule in myPellissippi.

Students in the VT1 sections will pick up their media during the orientation. Those who miss the orientation, add the course after the orientation, or want more information about telecourses should contact the instructor.
