Real Estate Course - Distance Education
Distance education is comprised of courses in which instruction does not take part in a traditional classroom setting but rather through other media in which teacher and student are separated by distance and sometimes by time. Distance education courses are generally delivered through such media as telecommunications or by computer.
The Commission approves distance education courses when:
- the courses meet all of the requirements outlined in Rule 520-2-.04, or
- the applicant provides satisfactory documentation that the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO) has certified the course as meeting its distance education standards. Any Commission approval based on such an ARELLO certification will cease immediately upon notice from ARELLO that certification of the course has been discontinued for any reason
The Commission does not permit schools to offer videotapes or replays of approved courses for credit.
In distance education courses, a credit hour is defined as sixty (60) minutes of instruction.
