Online Learning at Bronx Community College

In Online Learning Courses, part or all of the instruction is conducted online, using the Blackboard Course Management System.

Why Online Learning?

  • Online learning is a convenient and flexible way to advance your education.
  • Classes are internet based, so it is ideal for students who can not or do not want to travel to an on-campus class.
  • Online courses cover the same material and have the same transfer values as those offered on campus.
  • You are encouraged to register early for online learning classes as they often fill quickly and it allows you time to gather the information needed to get started in the class.

There are two types of online courses offered:

  1. Hybrid — 25% to 75% of coursework is conducted online and the rest is in a classroom or lab.
  2. Asynchronous — 75% or more of the coursework is conducted on line.

How to succeed in taking a Online Learning Course

To succeed in Online Learning Courses, students must be self-disciplined and good at managing their time and following directions. These characteristics are much more important than computer skills.

Requirements to take a Online Learning Course

  • Students must have access to the internet at home. A broadband connection (DSL or cable) is strongly recommended.
  • Basic knowledge of a word processor (Microsoft Word is strongly recommended) and a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari are the most commonly used browsers).
  • PLEASE NOTE: Students enrolled in distance learning courses must have active BCC E-mail and CUNY Portal accounts. For help with portal and email accounts, contact the Help Desk at (718) 289-5970 or via email at HelpDesk@bcc.cuny.edu.

All Online Learning sections are indicated by a "D" following the section number. Courses labeled with an "E" are also Writing Intensive. Each course is listed as either Hybrid or Asynchronous. Contact instructors to learn more about the individual courses, the amount and schedule of classroom time required and any other specific course requirements. To learn more about Online Learning at BCC, take a self-test to see if online learning is right for you.
