There are more advanced Linear Algebra courses available, usually taken by math and computer science students, which are sometimes called Advanced Linear Algebra, or Computational Linear Algebra. These are courses that jump into the math theory of Linear Algebra, and usuall require a student have had a course in group theory or abstract algebra.
Most students looking for a Linear Algebra course are looing for "Elementary Linear Algebra".
What is the difference in a taking a textbook/lecture based course on linear algebra vs Distance Calculus Linear Algebra?
There are huge differences between our Linear Algebra course, which is Mathematicabased, and a traditional textbook/lecture course.
Our Mathematicabased course is highly experimentationbased  running experiments graphically, numerically, algebraically, to get at the concepts of linear algebra as you would in a chemistry or physics lab.
Traditional Linear Algebra courses usually center on doing small calculations you can do by hand, and then concentrating on abstract concepts of linear algebra, avoiding difficult calculations in favor of ... sometimes proofs, sometimes just calculations that can be completed by humans on paper.
Our Distance Calculus DMAT 311  Linear Algebra course is perfect for students who might be interested in a "Computational Linear Algebra" course, although that course title is usually reserved for courses where the students are actually trying to learn how to program software like Mathematica or manual programs to do the computations. Those courses are more about numerical analysis, as they assume you already completed an Elementary Linear Algebra course before.

Review: The program used gives an amazing insight into everything that's happening, that you wouldn't get in a traditional course. All of the lessons are clear and clean, and the professor is very helpful along the way. I learned a lot and am happy with taking this course

Review: My microeconomics class required collegelevel calculus as a prerequisite, and I didn't want to wait until next year to take the class. So, I took DC's Calculus I class over the summer, so I could register for econ when I got back to school this fall. I actually think I got more help taking the class online than I would have in the huge lecture classes here. Prof. Curtis was really clear in explaining concepts and talking me through the topics that I was having trouble with. It took me about 10 weeks to finish the class, which didn't seem too long and didn't feel rushed. My friends who are in calculus now, trying to finish the prereq, are pretty jealous!
