Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from an online class?
Every eLearning course meets or exceeds the academic rigor and content found in traditional college courses. eLearning courses are not inherently “easier” nor do they require less of a time commitment than traditional face-to-face courses. If taking a three credit course that is offered 100% online you should expect to spend a minimum of five hours a week reading course materials, working on assignments and collaborating with your classmates in the online environment. How you divvy up that time is up to you. However, be sure to review the course syllabus to understand the instructor’s expectations regarding course interaction requirements and due dates.
How do I register for a eLearning class?
You register for eLearning classes the same way you register for traditional face-to-face classes – See the How to Register information for more detailed instructions
How much does a eLearning class cost?
eLearning classes cost the same as any other course at BCC. To get the most current information on tuition and fees visit the Student Accounts Office.
Where do I get my books?
Books for eLearning classes are available at the college’s bookstore.
How do I access my online class?

I signed up for an online class – when is our first meeting?
Most online classes do not have specific days or times when you meet as a class. However, all have deadlines and due dates so it is important that you log on to accessBCC on the first day of the term and carefully review the syllabus so you understand the course expectations.
What do I need in order to take an online class?
The main thing you need is access to a computer that has an internet connection. If you do not have your own computer remember that the college has an open computer lab in K130 and also has computers in the library which you may access. Your local library may also have systems that you can use.
