Available Online Courses
The list of Available Online Courses is located on our prospective student pages. This list is all the online courses offered, not necessarily the courses available in a particular semester.
What to do if there are Blackboard System Problems
Despite our best efforts to maintain system reliability, technology sometimes fails and you should be prepared in advance.
1. Always keep a backup copy of everything you submit online in case of technology problems, either with your computer or with Blackboard. It is a good idea to type longer discussion postings into a document first, save it, and then paste it into the discussion area.
2. Make sure your NWACC email is working, and check it regularly. If there is a major problem with Blackboard, notification will be sent you via NWACC email to let you know what is happening.
3. If you have assignments due or other concerns, contact your instructor immediately via NWACC email, and watch your NWACC email for updates from your instructor. They will inform you about any adjustments that may be necessary in your course.
Please be assured that in event of a system emergency, we will be doing everything we can to restore service to normal as quickly as possible.
