Bring the Classroom to You
Online classes represent the ultimate in convenience, since you can take them anywhere there’s a computer with a high-speed Internet connection.
They’re flexible, too, because you can learn whenever it’s best for you. Are you most productive in the early morning? If so, you can watch the video lectures, submit assignments, participate in class discussions, and interact with your instructor as the sun rises. Are you a night owl? If yes, you can do your schoolwork after most of the world has gone to bed. This flexibility is especially helpful with tests, since you can take them when you’re the sharpest.
When you’re taking notes in a classroom, it can be hard to keep up with the lecture. But with online classes, you can repeat parts or all of the video lecture as many times as you like. You miss nothing.
In today’s economy, credentials are essential to getting a good job. Online classes can put you well on your way to earning a certificate or associates degree. And most credits you earn through WCC’s online classes transfer to other schools.
WCC commonly offers online classes in areas such as biology, business management, communication, English, health science, history, math, and psychology, among others.
If you ever have a problem with an online class at WCC, review your Student Rights and Responsibilities described in the Board of Trustees Policy 4095.
We offer blended versions of many online classes. In most cases you just come to school once a week, and you gain the benefit of face-to-face discussions with your instructor and fellow students.more »
