While student enrollment continues to be up at Central Oregon Community College, they have also expanded the ways to deliver classes. COCC President Jim Middleton says they now offer what they call "hybrid classes" that are partially in the classroom and also online. "We feel that hybrid approach can tap the best of both worlds. Sometimes it can be a little bit isolating to do the course entirely online. We strive to have multiple locations and multiple approaches to teaching the courses that can fit individual needs." Middleton says they don't do entire degrees online; a student still has to have some face time. He adds that they do have some openings for students first year classes in general education.
