    ONLINE LEARNINGAt Suffolk, online education refers to the online Learning Management System (LMS) Blackboard Learn, and may include any online materials that instructors provide for their students to fully participate in a course. For example, a traditional lecture style course may require students to do homework online. Online education is an attractive option for individuals who are self-motivated and can work independently. There is no difference in what you are expected to learn; it is the modality that is different. Suffolk offers: Fully Online – These courses are offered entirely online using Blackboard Learn. Learning, participation in discussions, assignments and most exams are completed online. Please note, students taking fully online courses may still need to come to campus for some student services or proctored exams. Students cannot work at their own pace? Online courses follow the academic calendar and have due dates for assignments, discussions and exams. Students can register during the same times as for traditional courses. The college does not have open enrollment or Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Online courses are not easier. Online courses are just as difficult as on-campus courses, and may even be more challenging due to the learning modality of the course. Suffolk offers: Blended/Hybrid – These courses offer a combination of both classroom and independent online learning. The Blackboard Learn system is utilized for learning activities, participation in discussions, and course work in addition to classroom participation. Students are expected to complete both the in-person classroom and independent online components of the class for successful completion of the course. Suffolk offers: Web Enabled – These are traditional, on-campus courses for which instructors provide additional online study materials in Blackboard Learn. All Suffolk courses have the ability to be web enabled. Suffolk also offers: Computer Instruction on Campus - These are traditional, on-campus courses with computer lab-enhanced instruction. Along with the computerized instruction, instructors may provide additional online study materials for their students in the Blackboard Learn system. The entire course or a section of the course may be taught through a computer program with instructor guidance. These courses meet in one of the computer lab classrooms and the program is accessed via Blackboard Learn. Students should enroll in fully online or blended courses only if they are serious about and capable of more independent, computerized learning and timely completion of college-level coursework. In a fully online or blended/hybrid course, students will participate in lessons, complete assignments (e.g., essay exams, research papers, etc.) and take online assessments. To enroll in an online course, students should have successfully completed any requisite developmental coursework. Call for more detailed information.
