Information Highway Classes

Fayetteville Technical Community College recognizes that many of the funeral service and funeral directing students reside away from the greater Fayetteville/ Cumberland County area. In order to provide distance learning for those students, FTCC works in a combined effort with other colleges across the state to provide funeral education courses.

The Information Highway courses are designed much like a traditional face-to-face instructional course, but with one primary difference; students at distant colleges view the "primary" class on large monitors at their area college. Cameras and microphones send video and audio signals to the distant site from FTCC, and the cameras and microphones at the distant site college also send video and audio signals back to FTCC, so the classes interact in 'real' time.

Distant college campuses that "link" to FTCC's funeral courses include:


Brunswick Community College, Supply, N.C.
Catawba Valley Community College, Hickory, N.C.
Edgecombe Community College, Tarboro, N.C.
Randolph Community College, Asheboro, N.C.
