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