​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. A computer or tablet and you’re on your way! There are two kinds of online courses: 

        • ​Online classes are taught completely online.
        • Hybrid classes are taught partly in the classroom and partly online.

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, take this ONLINE READINESS QUIZ.

If you'd like to assess your online readiness more, you can look at these Online Learning Readiness Self-Assessment Modules.

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)

Getting Started

All classes use Moodle (link), or Canvas (starting Fall 2016) ,our campus online learning management systems. Canvas or Moodle is where your class will take place. Canvas and Moodle provides class activities of shared documents, graded assignments, quizzes, discussion forums, etc. for your online courses. The Canvas and  Moodle login pages have links for instructions on how to log in to Canvas or  Moodle for the first time.​​
