3 College Senior

Online Courses: I have not taken many online courses.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Very convenient online classes. Homeworks can be a little overwhelming but I understand that it is an online class

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Online courses are very convenient. Sometimes online courses can be self-taught, but that depends on the teacher. I have had teachers who contact students everyday and help them through the course, and I have had teachers who rely solely on the online programs and tell students to read the book and then take tests. Some online teachers require discussions between the class, which makes it feel like we are having a discussion in a regular classroom.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: ACCC's online classes were so easy to take. It was simple to submit homework, take tests, and view grades. It let me have more control on how I learn and at my pace.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online courses use the Blackboard 9 system that is very easy and user friendly. Every online professor I have taken has been very good. One thing to remember when signing up for online courses is that although it may offer some flexibility as far as when you may complete your assignments, that doesnt mean its a free for all. Assignments still have weekly due dates and there is a lot more writing and busy work than you would have in a traditional classroom course.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The online classes at Atlantic Cape are very student-oriented. Students often rely on one another when completing assignments, and courses can sometimes become more of a peer learning session than an actual college class if the professor is not involved. Many times, the professors are there through email to answer questions and to discuss issues with students, but are otherwise nonexistent.

Online courses are a great way to earn credits "on the go," but it is not as easy to take a course on a complicated subject, such as math, as it is to complete an English assignment. The courses themselves are very simple and easy to navigate and are a good option for students that must complete Atlantic Cape Community College core requirements, such as history, that may not relate to their majors. Class assignments for most of ACCC online courses are set up in a schedule that says when specific assignments are due, and some professors use other online systems besides Blackboard (the Atlantic Cape online classroom website), such as turnitin.com, to recieve assignments and to check for plagarism.

Facts & Statistics

Required Tech Skills
Taking an online class at ACCC requires only basic computer skills. Instructions for classes are explained in the course and are very simple to follow.
Typical Online Lecture - Single Day
The professor gives instructions and information, and it is up to the student to view and participate in lectures. Lectures include group discussion and related activities.
Typical Online Course - Start to Finish
A typical course lasts around three hours, with a medium workload, group discussion, and an occasional testing day or project presentation. The typical online course is fairly simple to navigate, although the classes sometimes become more of a peer-to-peer session than a set of students being taught by a professor.
Online Testing & Grading
Many online tests are open book, and some can be completed in groups, depending on the professor. Grading is done based on whether a student submits work on time, in addition to the work being complete and acceptable. Most of the grades are usually tests, with some additional assignments, such as papers.
Did You Know?
Online courses are a great way to gain extra college credits without worrying about fitting another class time into a busy schedule.
