Tri-C to Make 'Cable College' Accessible to More County Residents.
CLEVELAND -- Cuyahoga Community College's 'Cable College,' where courses are broadcast live via cable television to homes in Cleveland and several western and southwestern suburbs, will also be streamed live to the Internet beginning this fall semester. That means anyone with a broadband Internet connection in Cuyahoga County and beyond will have access for the first time to a variety of Cable College courses.
Tri-C Cable College allows students to take credit courses and interact 'live' in classroom discussions via phone, all from the convenience of the student's home. "It's important that we provide additional students with this option," said Patricia Mintz, dean of academic affairs at Tri-C's Metro Campus. "Sometimes a childcare or transportation issue might prevent a student from being physically present on campus. Now students with broadband Internet will have another way to access Cable College classes and successfully complete credit courses."
Along with increased accessibility, Cable College this fall boasts additional courses, including 'Beginning Spanish' and 'Beginning Chinese Language and Culture.' Other available courses include several history, math and business classes, and courses in urban studies, mass communications and speech. Cleveland Councilwoman Nina Turner will teach an evening class on American National Government.
Tri-C Cable College courses will also continue to be broadcast on Time Warner Channel 24 in Cleveland, and on Cox Cable Digital Channel 216 in Broadview Heights, Brooklyn Heights, Fairview Park, Lakewood, Olmsted Falls, Olmsted Township, Parma, Parma Heights, Rocky River and Seven Hills.
