Houston Community College's online course options are endless! Besides regular academic courses, students can enroll in continuing education and real estate classes online. There are workforce programs, such as the banking program, that provide online classes as well.
Technology plays a huge part in the success of an online course, so make sure your computer is up-to-date and has the correct software plug-ins. Students and teachers interact with one another through e-mail, Blackboard Vista, and office appointments on campus where needed. Testing and grading depends on the instructor. Some evenly weight online quizzes, exams, labs, and finals, while others place more emphasis on projects. Online courses have enough assigned work to keep you busy, and some students will become overloaded if they procrastinate. It's best to use self-discipline and stay on top of due dates.
