About eLearning

Further your education with
the flexibility of eLearning
 
Online courses bring the classroom to you using the Internet and your email. They are taught using a variety of Learning Management Systems (LMS).
There are basic skills and technology required.

Our eLearning Course Listings will tell you how to access your specific course and what materials you'll need. 

Course materials vary and may include textbooks, study guides, DVDs, videos, as well as information downloaded from the Internet. All online students will be charged an online fee.

A small number of classes (called "Hybrid" courses) require face to face time on campus. These Hybrid courses are indicated by a “.77” section number. Check your individual Course Listings for details.

While SSC offers many courses that are fully online, there are face-to-face courses that require students view information on the Instructor's "portal page". If your instructor has a portal page, you will find it listed here:

Online courses are not self-paced

They have regularly scheduled start and end dates, and deadline dates are assigned for your classroom activities.

Always read your syllabus and don't hesitate to ask your instructor for information. Online students need to plan 12-15 hours of study per week per course, and to login 5 out of 7 days, starting the first day of the quarter.

Your online instructor will give you very detailed instructions to guide you through the process. 

Online students use email for sending and receiving assignments and class projects, and to communicate with your instructor and classmates.

All campus labs have Internet access, and require students to pay a campus computer lab fee. Check current amounts here.

Technical issues sometimes occur 

Please keep backup copies of all work, assignments, quiz answers, and grades. http://sites.southseattle.edu/backup-strategies/

Please always have a backup plan for computer use in case you experience technical difficulties with your machine or device.

Be patient and ALWAYS let your instructor know what's going on! Remember, it happens to all of us, but we must ask for help when it does!

While all students are expected to have basic computer skills, remember that it never hurts to ask for help when you need it. Students can visit the Geek Hauz on campus for one-on-one help with technology.
