Online Learning & Resources

Are you always on the run?

Busy with work, life, and family?

Not sure if you have time for school?

You can still go to college!

 

There are many ways to take classes at San José City College. Online learning may be right for you.
Online classes are taught completely online. A computer or tablet and you’re on your way!
Hybrid classes are taught partly in the classroom and partly online.

    • Hybrid - Partly Online: These classes meet regularly, but have less class time than standard face-to-face classes. The rest of the class takes place online.
    • Hybrid - Mostly Online: These classes are conducted online, but require attendance on campus for an orientation or one or more exams.
    • Face-to-face: classes may have online assignments.

Are Online Classes Right for You?

Online Classes, also known as Distance Learning, are not for everyone. To help you decide whether distance learning is right for you, you can take this Self-Assessment Quiz.  


Online Learning can provide an excellent way to achieve your educational goals, especially if you need a more flexible schedule or are unable to come to campus. But you should be aware that:

    • Online courses require as much time and commitment as traditional classroom-based
    • Most of your communication with your instructor and with other students will be in writing (in the form of email, discussion forums, chat rooms, blogs, wikis, or other online communication methods).
    • Studying online requires:
        • Self-motivation

        • Self-discipline

        • The ability to follow written instructions the ability to work on your own

 

Getting Started

Most classes use Moodle, our campus online learning environment. If your class does not use Moodle, your instructor will tell you how to access online materials on another site. Moodle also provides shared documents, graded assignments, quizzes, discussion forums, etc. for your online courses.
