Are You Ready for Online Learning?
Online courses are offered at GNTC for those students who find this method of learning more convenient and a better fit for their busy lives. If you decide to enroll in an online course, make sure that you consider the following:
Computer Skills: Do you have the computer skills needed to successfully complete the assigned work and exams for your online course? A SmarterMeasure Assessment Test is offered on GNTC's web page by clicking on the Current Students tab and then Online Learning. Complete the assessment prior to enrolling to know for sure if you have the computer ability to successfully complete an online course.
Computer Compatibility: Does your computer meet the requirements for online learning? Make sure that you check these requirements to see if your computer is compatible for using Blackboard, which is GNTC’s system for online learning. For computer requirements, visit GNTC's Blackboard page.
Online Learning opportunities are available as follows:
- Online: Courses are delivered via the Internet with few or no on-campus meetings. The minimum requirements for students to participate in an online course are access to a computer, a reliable broadband Internet connection, and motivation to succeed in a nontraditional classroom setting.
- Hybrid: Courses meet one or more days per week in the classroom and also require work online.
- Web-Enhanced: Courses meet regularly during the week and are supplemented with online activities, assignments, or homework.
