What is a telecourse?

CPCC has a longstanding history of utilizing television (TV) and video for delivery of training materials and college-level courses. Historically, these courses have been called "telecourses." With the advent of the internet and digital media, we now call them TELEWEB courses. A TELEWEB course is a fully accredited, college-level integrated learning package which employs professionally produced video lessons to present significant portions of its content. Video lessons can be viewed online within the Learning Management System (LMS: Blackboard or Moodle) employed for the course.

The video programs are broadcast on CPCC TV, the college’s cable TV channel which goes into approximately 225,000 households in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.

If you want to earn college credit, but find it difficult to fit weekly on-campus classes into your busy schedule, CPCC TELEWEB courses can help you achieve your goal.

How do TELEWEB Courses work?

Instructors customize CPCC TELEWEB courses to maximize the student’s control over the time, place, and pace of instruction. Textbooks, workbooks, telephone, email, and the internet, are all employed to create the best mix of learning experiences to accomplish this goal.

How and where do I view my TELEWEB course lessons?

All TELEWEB course lessons are shown on CPCC TV, which is available in Charlotte, Pineville, Matthews, and Mint Hill on the basic service (channel 17) of Time Warner Cable of Charlotte. It is also available in Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius, Lake Norman, Mooresville and certain areas of Iredell county on channel 23, also on the basic service of Time Warner Cable. If you are not in one of the approximately 225,000 households in the college service area that gets CPCC TV, there are multiple viewing options.

If CPCC TV is not on your cable system, or you don't get cable at all, you have the following viewing options:
  • CPCC LIBRARIES
    All lessons of all TELEWEB courses are available at each CPCC campus library for on-site viewing. Library hours vary by campus.
  • UNC-TV
    Some CPCC TELEWEB courses will be broadcast statewide on the UNC-TV network. Our area’s UNC-TV network station is WUNG-TV, channel 58, Concord. [more]
