How Online Classes Work
In online classes, you watch video lectures, participate in class discussions, submit assignments, and take tests on your computer.
You do this 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 work based on the schedule in the class syllabus. Online classes follow the same semester calendar as on-campus classes.
Getting your books is easy. You can buy them from the WCC Barnes & Noble bookstore, either on campus or online.
Contact the Help Desk for assistance with Blackboard related issues.
The Help Desk is now available 7/24

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 »
