Online Learning Requirement

Online Learning Requirement: COL 111 (E-Learning Success)
  • Effective Fall Semester 2018, students who are either new or returning to GTC after a three-semester break AND who plan to take an online course(s) must complete a 1-credit, online COL 111 course designed to foster success in an online learning environment. While COL 111 could be helpful to any student, it is not currently required for continuing students or students who plan to take only face-to-face or blended courses.
  • Before registering for any fully online course, affected students must have either completed COL 111 successfully (prerequisite) or be registered for COL 111 (co-requisite) in the same term.
  • Faculty members have designed COL 111 to introduce students to basic computer skills and functions necessary to navigate the Blackboard learning management system. COL 111 also includes assignments for students to self-assess whether they are prepared for online learning.
  • Unlike other courses, COL 111 tuition is set at $25, and there is no additional textbook cost. In most cases, the course will not be eligible for financial aid.

Register for online courses

Registering for online or hybrid courses is done the same way as registering for a traditional classroom course at GTC. Start by applying to the college - step 1 of the enrollment process.

About Online Courses

Online courses are asynchronous or synchronous - fancy words for simple concepts!

Asynchronous means that not everyone in the class is meeting at the same time; in fact, online courses allow you to attend class at any time of day or night (though some courses have on-campus assessments that must be scheduled), and the instructor may not be in the class at the same time you are.

Synchronous classes, like blended (or hybrid) courses, meet on campus at certain scheduled times, and the students and instructors are present in class at the same time.
