What to expect in an online course.

Are online classes easier?
No. In fact, you may encounter more reading and writing than you would in a traditional classroom.

Your course will be in PPCC Online Campus (D2L).
Here you will access course materials, assignments, discussions and quizzes.

Instructors establish due dates for assignments, discussions and exams just like a traditional class. As long as you are meeting your instructor's due dates, you can work at your own pace and be online when it works best for you.

Do online classes require prerequisites or on-campus testing?
Online classes, just like those on campus, sometimes require prerequisites. Some PPCC Online courses require on-campus testing (or proctored testing at another location), but most online courses require no on-campus time. Generally the only classes requiring on-campus testing will be math and some science courses.


Hybrid & Hyflex Courses

You can combine online with in class mixing the best of both worlds, hybrid & hyflex courses combine on-campus class sessions with internet coursework. 

Hybrid meets once a week in the classroom with the rest of your course work online.

Hyflex allows the choice to be at home or come to campus during the scheduled class time.
