LRC & Distance Education Mission Statements
The Learning Resources Center (LRC) acts as both an instructional support system and an information network. Services are provided not only to the faculty, staff and students of Mayland Community College, but also to any resident of Avery, Mitchell or Yancey counties. Resources include both print and non-print materials, electronic resources, audio-visual equipment and workshops/orientations.
Distance learning is defined as the interaction of learner and instructor that occurs when the two are separated by place and/or time. The learning experience is designed around the needs of the learner. Distance education at Mayland Community College shall provide every available opportunity for an individual to pursue education that will enhance professional and personal well-being. This form of education is a convenient and increasingly popular mode of delivery, freeing the learner from time and location constraints - constraints often viewed as major barriers preventing individuals from attending college. Mayland shall offer such high-quality distance education options as teleweb courses, Internet-based courses, independent study courses, interactive television courses, or any other means to ensure accessibility to College programs and services.
