Distance Education

COB awards

The intent of the distance education efforts by the Texas A&M University – Texarkana College of Business, Engineering and Technology faculty is to deliver education as much as possible to our students to meet their convenience and preferred learning style.  Some students work better through online methodologies; others prefer face-to-face interactions.  The CBET, to the limits of our resources, attempts to service the students in their preferred and most convenient location and style of learning.

Classes in the Texas A&M University–Texarkana College of Business, Engineering and Technology are taught in various modes, in various disciplines, at a couple of different levels, at a couple of different locations.

For instance, regarding modes, the college maintains three main modes of course content delivery.  The three main modes are as follows:

  • Face-to-face courses – courses delivered directly to the students.
  • Web Enhanced courses - courses taught face-to-face but are enhanced with online technology.
  • On-line courses – courses taught completely using web technologies.

The College of Business, Engineering and Technology offers some classes at off-site locations when it aligns with the mission and essentially any one or more of three criteria are met. The first criteria is an alignment to the mission in that “Does the location target audience fit the criteria that the distant site addresses students in the Northeast Texas Four State Region (Northeast Texas, Southwest Arkansas, Northwest Louisiana, and Southeast Oklahoma)?”  The second criterion is “Is this a prime or potential source location for recruiting students for the region we serve?”  The third criterion is “Can we offer an added level of delivering convenience for the students from the area we serve?”  There are two main locations where courses are offered at a distant site where these criteria are met.

  • Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC) in Mt. Pleasant, Texas – this site is a primary source of students for the A&M–Texarkana CBET and often it is more convenient to send a professor to them rather than having several students drive to the campus for face-to-face or web enhanced courses.
  • Red River Army Depot – the courses delivered at this location are a designed in a package that offers a certificate for the workers at this location.

Faculty assigned to teach at these locations meet and exceed the ratios of the minimal expectations for AACSB.  It is the intent of the administration in the CBET to deliver courses at the same quality levels a student on campus would expect.
