The E-Learning Center at Borough of Manhattan Community College offers E-Learning courses to help students from around the globe. Online courses offer convenience and flexibility for students with busy lives. Within required deadlines, students can work at times, days and locations that are convenient for their schedule.
BMCC instructors create dynamic student-centered learning through informed research-based teaching methods. Instructors lead students through the material to help them succeed in online courses. Faculty members communicate regularly through Blackboard and maintain high levels of interaction using tools such as audio lectures, videos, discussion boards, e-mail, live chat sessions and video-conferencing technology.
Hundreds of sections from several programs are available each semester. A substantial portion of the Liberal Arts Program (LIB) may be completed through E-Learning courses.
Online courses are just as rigorous and demanding as face-to-face classes. Nearly half of the courses at BMCC use online instructional materials through Blackboard or other online tools to supplement on-campus and online teaching. Each fully online and hybrid course is the equivalent of the course we offer in the face-to-face format. Each course carries the same number of credits, covers the same subject matter, and is taught by a member of the BMCC faculty. For the average student, each credit earned requires approximately three hours of weekly coursework or nine hours weekly for a three credit class.
