Online / Classroom Blended Learning

What is ePIT?

ePIT is a blended online/classroom learning option that provides the convenience and the flexibility that many students need in their busy schedules. With this program you won't have to put off your technology education – you'll be able to pursue a degree or certificate in over a dozen areas, including computer science, pharmacy tech, medical billing and coding, health care management, physical therapist assistant, and more. Students will attend approximately 90 minutes of in-class learning per week per class. The balance of the class will be fulfilled via online activities.

Instructors will use on-line learning tools such as discussion boards, videos, web sites, on-line collaboration and other methods combined with traditional, classroom-based instruction. It also provides the comfort of knowing that you will see your instructor on a weekly basis and that they are available for face-to-face meetings. P.I.T. is pleased to offer you this unique program.

Blended E-Learning courses are NOT easier than classes that are taught exclusively in a traditional classroom. There is no cost difference between traditional and Blended E-Learning courses. The Pennsylvania Institute of Technology plans to expand its course selection for its Blended E-Learning program in subsequent terms.
