Blackboard Demo Course

Online Learning at NWACC is typically delivered through the Blackboard Learn 9.1 system. Some courses use MyMathLab and other publisher websites to deliver content. In an online course you can expect to have regular class discussions using a discussion board, submit papers and assignments, and take quizzes and tests within the online system. While your instructor is there to answer any questions you might have and provide some direction, in an online course it is up to you to learn what you need to complete the assigned work.


Be sure you understand what it takes to be successful in an online environment.
