Course Requirement Outlines for On-line classes
As part of Blue Ridge Community College's Quality Enhancement Plan, which is focused on improving student success in online courses, the College will be posting a Course Requirement Outline for every fully online course being offered in the upcoming semester. The Course Requirement Outlines will provide students useful information about every online course, including time requirements and the specific skills necessary to be successful in that course. Students should use this information to help them determine their ability to be successful in a particular online courseprior to registering for that course. At this time, there are no Course Requirement Outlines available for seated courses and/or hybrid courses (seated courses with online documents are available in Moodle).
Information regarding the specific requirements for each online course being offered in the upcoming semester can be found in the Course Requirements Outlines located at: www.tinyurl.com/Getthe411
