– A hybrid course is when a course meets both on campus and online. In a hybrid course a significant portion of the learning takes place online supplemented with face-to-face classroom interaction. All NCCC Hybrid courses are noted with a “Y” in the course section field. (ex: ENG 101 -0Y1)
- What is an online course?
– The majority of eLearning courses at NCCC are fully online. Online courses require no face-to-face or synchronous (specific online meeting time) components included in the online course unless specified by the instructor or department. All online Math courses at NCCC require you to either come to campus for the final exam OR to have it proctored if you choose not to come to campus. Each instructor will provide you information on how to locate a qualified proctor if one is required.
- Does NCCC provide me with a computer and/or software? Can I complete my course with a tablet or Smartphone?
– All NCCC students, including Online and Hybrid students, are responsible for purchasing their own learning materials including books, laptops, and course specific software. It is highly recommended that you have access to a computer with a broadband Internet connection. Although you can login using the Blackboard Mobile App, you can’t complete all of the required course work with a mobile device at this time.
