Think you're too busy with job and family responsibilities to attend classes? Online courses are designed for students with busy schedules. Online students "attend" class anytime and anywhere they have Internet access...at home, work, Clark State computer labs, even the local coffee shop! Almost half of the students enrolled at Clark State take online courses as part of their education. And it is important to remember that even though these classes are popular and convenient, they are just as challenging as regular classes and cover the same material.
Are you ready for online learning? Find out by completing the Start the SmarterMeasure assessment. It will take you about 30 minutes, but you may log out and complete it later if necessary. It is a tool that will help you assess your strengths and weaknesses related to online learning.
Hybrid classes combine the elements of online and traditional courses together. These courses require attendance at scheduled on-campus or clinical locations for lectures, labs or clinical experiences. The amount of time spent in the face-to-face setting will be about 50 percent of what is required in a traditional course.
You will have access to your online or hybrid course(s) on the first day of each term. You can access your course(s) from a link in the myClarkState student portal. Clark State is now using Blackboard as its learning management system.
