Welcome to the ARC Online Student Success Hub, gain valuable information, tips, and hear from students who have been through the grind to make your online experiene a success!
A partially online course is taught online using similar web-based tools with course activities as an online class. Some portion of the course meeting time is conducted online, and the remaining percentage of the class is conducted in a traditional classroom manner.
The class is taught face-to-face for 100% of the course meeting time, but classroom assignments and materials are supplemented with web-based activities. Examples are online projects, hand-outs and materials, online discussions, or online testing.
Online learning can be an exciting way to learn; it can also be challenging. Your success is directly tied to your effort and organization. It requires a high level of motivation and self-discipline, and you may spend more hours on coursework than you would if you took the same course in a classroom
Most communication in an online class consists of written messages between you and the instructor and discussions among class participants. If you have difficulty with an assignment or have questions, you must be willing to "speak up" to inform the instructor. Good typing skills also are a plus.
Enrolling for online classes is the same as enrolling in face to face classes. Visit Los Rios Enrollment Instructions for exact procedures.
