openhousesplash2The Virtual Collegeat Miami Dade College offers distance learning sometimes called e-learning courses.  Courses are available via the internet so that learners can “attend” class without ever coming to campus! Students are a part of a learning community where other adult learners and faculty interact and share knowledge to better help everyone in the class grow intellectually and professionally.

Learning online provides the same quality education as learning in the classroom while offering you the convenience of setting your own schedule. At the Virtual College, we provide students with the newest technologies to provide the highest caliber education.
