Online Classes

April 2nd, 2014 by webdev

At CFCC we have a wide range of options for taking classes. You can take evening classes that meet once a week for three hours or a daytime class that meets three times a week for an hour each time. We also have some online options.

When using WebAdvisor for selecting classes pay attention to the following items:

  • If the section starts with the letter I – the class is completely internet based.
  • If the section is DY – this is a hybrid class based at the Downtown Campus. You will likely meet with your instructor only once a week, but complete a majority of your work online.
  • If the section is NY – this is a hybrid class based at North Campus.

Other ways to know you are registering for an online class:

  • Room:
  • Classroom hours: to be announced
  • Times: to be announced

You must have regular use of a computer and internet access. You will have to discipline yourself to manage your time and submit assignments when required. Deadlines can be any day and hour.

In addition to submitting work via email or uploaded files the online instructors use discussion boards. The quality of your online discussions in these forms is an important part of your grade.

The critical item to remember about online classes is the enrollment verification.

The enrollment verification is an assignment your instructor will post on the first day of class.  Do not skip this assignment; you will be dropped from the class automatically. There is an audit process that must be completed at the beginning of each semester. Your instructors for seated classes can complete this audit process with attendance records. Your online instructor uses the enrollment verification assignment.

Online classes can be a great way to manage your educational goals. Don’t be afraid to try one. Just remember to ask for help right away if you don’t understand how something works.
