Many courses are offered via the World Wide Web. Students attend class using a computer connected to the Internet through a standard Internet Service Provider. The computer can be at the student’s home, work or in a campus lab. Students must activate their my.stlcc.edu student e-mail account and possess basic computer and Internet skills. Online courses offer students flexibility in that they can be worked on at any time. Like independent study, these courses require a great deal of independent work and consistent effort. Students must be motivated and self-disciplined.
Course orientation and exams may be held on campus, at instructor-approved sites, or completely over the Internet, depending on the specific course. Tutorials, e-mail, student discussion forums, essay submission and retrieval, operating instructions, bulletins and some library research will be done by computer. For orientation information, look up the course and section in the interactive class schedule.
Help With Courses
