Internet classes provide flexible and dynamic learning opportunities for students who might not be able to attend traditional classes due to work or life commitments.
Successful online learners are well-organized, efficient time managers who have strong reading and written communication skills. They also possess basic computer skills, and have access to a reliable computer and the Internet. Finally, online students know when to ask for help, and proactively use the wide range EMCC’s learning support resources.
Internet classes require students to be highly proactive in scheduling dedicated chunks of time to review class materials, participating in online discussions, completing assignments, and submitting class work via the Internet. EMCC students have said that these classes have actually helped them improve their time management skills.
EMCC’s course content, Academic Rigor, and credits earned is the same across all formats. For example, ENG 101 covers the same material in a traditional, hybrid, and on-line format, and is worth the same number of credits. The major difference is in how time is managed in each format.
