General Information

There are many benefits of online courses at MCCC:

• Less restrictive scheduling
• Convenience
• Intensive self-study
• Course materials are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week

Some students struggle in an online format. Other students excel. Students who excel in an online format:

• Are highly self-motivated
• Have strong computer skills
• Possess good time management skills
• Know how to study independently
• Possess good communication skills

Online classes at MCCC utilize Brightspace (Web-based course management system) communication tools, such as email, discussion boards and chats to interact with the instructor and other students.

Online classes at MCCC are not self-paced. Students must complete exams, assignments, etc. by specified due dates. Please see the college’s website for more Brightspace information.

Myths About Online Courses

Myth 1: Online classes are easier. Online classes are not easier than a traditional class; they are just presented in a different format. For some people, online classes can be more difficult because of the extensive reading and time management skills necessary to be successful.

Myth 2:
Online classes do not follow a regular schedule. In reality, online classes follow a very similar schedule as a traditional class. Assignments, tests and other projects and assessments have due dates.

Myth 3: Online students never have to come to campus. To the contrary, online students may have to come to campus for an orientation, testing, presentations, etc. Please refer to online course information for specific requirements.

Myth 4:
I can “hide” and remain anonymous in an online course. Actually, online classes require regular online discussions and other interactions.

Myth 5:
Malfunctioning computer, email, etc. are acceptable excuses for late work. Students have many options to continue working online should their main systems malfunction. Students are expected to use the email address assigned to them by MCCC and must find other means of keeping up with online coursework (e.g., using a computer in a campus lab or at a public
library).

Myth 6:
Students are taught how to use a computer in an online class. Students are expected to have basic computer skills prior to taking an online class. An online student should be comfortable using the Internet, word processing software and emailing with attachments.

Myth 7:
Procrastination in an online class is okay. Because there are regular lessons and due dates, it is essential that online students are able to keep a regular schedule. Procrastination in an online course can negatively impact an online student’s success.

It is essential that students use their MCCC student email account. This will be the primary means of email communication between you and your instructor. For more information about activating your MCCC student email account, the college’s homepage at: www.monroeccc.edu.
