How Blended Classes Work
With blended classes, you watch video lectures, submit assignments, and take tests on your computer. You travel to campus—usually just once a week—for discussions with your classmates and instructor.
You do your online work using Blackboard, an online class management system. If you ever have a problem with Blackboard, you can get help by calling or emailing WCC’s Blackboard help desk. It’s open seven days a week.
You do all of your schoolwork, including your online assignments, based on the schedule in the class syllabus. Blended classes follow the same semester calendar as regular classes.
Getting your books is easy. You can buy them from the WCC Barnes & Noble bookstore, either on campus or online.
We understand that taking tests and doing your schoolwork online might seem a little scary, but our Blackboard help desk provides great support and we offer on-campus training sessions.more »
