Anymore, attending class in-person isn’t always the norm or even realistic within your busy life. You’re working a full-time job while earning an education. Or staying home with children. Or live in a different area of the state or country.
We get it. So, we’ve moved a number of our course offerings online, including many of our general education requirements, so you can take classes whenever it’s most convenient for you.
Online courses are taught electronically using the learning management system (LMS) Blackboard. Some courses are taught fully online, while others utilize online components to facilitate communication with faculty or turn in assignments or check grades. Our campuses are also equipped with Interactive Video (ITV) distance learning classrooms, so you can attend classes that are being held concurrently on another campus.
Taking online classes requires a certain amount of self-discipline and organization. Because you will not be meeting face-to-face with an instructor, you are ultimately responsible for remembering all deadlines, listening to all the lectures, and reaching out when you need additional help understanding the material. We recommend scheduling specific time throughout the week for your classes, so you can develop a routine. If you need a little help organizing or could use some advice, speak with our Career Pathways & Advising department.
