At Front Range Community College, we understand how busy your life is. Each semester FRCC offers more than 350 online classes you can take from the office over your lunch break, from home while the kids are sleeping, or even from a coffee shop in a faraway place – anywhere you have time and an internet connection.
How does online learning work?
Online courses cover the same material as campus-based courses. Our skilled teachers use online course sites, podcasting, and other technologies to build an online community of learners. You’ll have class discussions, assignments, projects, and deadlines just as you would in a campus-based course. You’ll also have to work just as hard, but you can contribute to discussions and complete your assignments any time of the day or night as long as you meet the deadlines.
Are online courses right for me?
Here are some other things to consider:
- You’ll need access to a computer and the Internet to be able to participate in class.
- Depending on your current level of experience, you may also need to learn new skills in order to view course materials and communicate with your instructor and other students online. Podcasts, discussion groups, chat rooms – these can all part of online learning.
- Do you need face-to-face contact? Some people learn better that way. If this describes you, consider taking one of our hybrid courses. They offer some of the flexibility of online learning, but still include some face-to-face meetings on campus. See your advisor for more information.
- If you are willing to commit the time, be self-motivated, and self-disciplined, you can succeed as an online student.
