Online Computer Classes

Online Course Information

These courses are entirely self-paced. You do not need to download any software or wait for future lessons. Within the 5-week session, you can access and work on any lesson, 24 hours a day and work as little or as much as you like–whatever suits you best. To budget your time; plan an average of 6 hours per week in online instruction (about 1 lesson per week). This includes reading the materials, watching video lessons, completing assignments and uploading your work.

 

Once you are registered, a one-time classroom meeting is required before the class begins; to pick up your book, materials and log in instructions. All correspondence is done via email. To receive a certificate of completion for the course, students must take an on-site final exam during one of our scheduled lab times or make special arrangements with the online instructor for that course. A final exam score of 80% or better is required to receive a certificate of course completion.

 

Students who are enrolled in online computer class will take their final exam in a classroom with their teacher. Students who do not pas the final exam the first time can retake the exam on a later date for a $20 fee per additional text.

 

Computer Requirements:

Full version of Microsoft Office 2016 or higher is required to learn the program (i.e. Word online requires you to have Word 2016 or higher, etc., not a starter edition). This must be installed on your computer prior to starting the class. Internet access is also required in order to successfully watch the video content and upload your completed assignments to the instructor. The online classes are based on a PC with Windows 7 not a MAC.
