Online Courses at Harper College

An online course is delivered via the World Wide Web. This technology allows students
that have access to a computer and the Internet to attend class. Many of the online
classes offered at Harper College use the very popular Blackboard learning management
system to facilitate course work and virtual classroom interaction between students,
their peers, and faculty members. Students will also use email, discussion boards,
and collaboration tools in lieu of the traditional face-to-face interaction of the
classroom. It is up to the individual faculty member’s discretion as to whether or
not there will be a mandatory on campus orientation at the beginning of the semester.

  • Select the Subject from the Subject area and Online from the Instructional Method area first to narrow your search)
  • Select any additional options and select the Class Search button.

Study Tips for Online Courses

There are many different ways to study successfully for an online class. You are encouraged
to find the way that works best for you and use it throughout your course.

The following list of tips were created by former students who found them to be especially
helpful. Please read this list and adopt the tips you think might be useful for you.

  • Buy all required course materials. Information provided on the Web does not take the
    place of your textbook and/or other materials.
  • Arrange for easy access to a computer with an Internet connection.
  • Create a personal (not shared) email account so you receive all course-related messages.
  • Read each assignment as well as the information on the course Web site. Don’t substitute
    one for the other as they both have important information in them.
  • Check your course Web site at least three times a week for announcements, course information,
    new discussion postings and assignment specifications.
  • Complete assignments on time and send them in at least 4 hours before the actual time
    due in case Internet connection problems occur.
  • Set up a study schedule and stick with it to help you avoid falling behind in the
    class.
  • Study in an environment where you will not be interrupted by noise.
  • Contact your professor by email well in advance of due dates as you may need to wait
    48 hours for a response to your questions.
  • Contact Technical Support by email or telephone whenever you have computer hardware
    or software problems.
