Virtual vs. Online Classes - What's the Difference?

Virtual classes meet remotely in real time with live instructors during the scheduled class session. Continue to take your favorite CEPD classes with your favorite CEPD instructors, all from a virtual platform (mostly Zoom). You can attend class using a computer, tablet, and most cell phones. Instructions for accessing your virtual class are emailed at least 3 days prior to the start of your class.  If you do not receive an email from your instructor by that time, please contact the CEPD front desk at 734-462-4448 or email us at cepd@schoolcraft.edu, to confirm your preferred email address is correct in our database.

Online classes can be accessed any time of day, any day of the week. These classes do not meet in real time, meaning you can work on material at any time that is convenient for you. Class content is accessed through a web browser. Instructions for accessing online classes and additional online class information can be found at schoolcraft.edu/cepd/online
