College to offer training for engaging in online classes

Distance learning has come a long way over the last 30 years. For all their benefits, however, online classes also offer some unique challenges compared to traditional, in-person classes. Without a plan for managing the challenges, performance could suffer.

Having moved most classes to remote delivery methods for the fall 2020 term, Cerro Coso Community College would like the community to know they offer a 1 unit class in “Becoming a Successful Online Student.”

Coll C052 (CRN 75652) is being offered August 17 through September 5, 2020 online with Counselor Karee Hamilton.

Specifically designed to assist students in becoming successful in online courses, the class provides preparation for online course work by focusing on the fundamentals of the online educational environment.

Topics include email use, online class interactions such as discussion groups, the differences between online and onsite courses, equipment needs, and other introductory information.

Utilizing the information, time management, and organizational skills learned in this class is just one of the many ways Cerro Coso is here to assist students in becoming successful this fall.

Things may have changed over the last five months, but Cerro Coso is here for you.

The college is currently registering for fall classes, which begin Aug. 24. More information and registration available online at www.cerrocoso.edu or call a counselor today at 760-384-6219.
