eLearning includes all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching and provides faculty the flexibility of delivering some, or all coursework to students.
Linn-Benton Community College offers a variety of eLearning options giving students the opportunity to participate in classes beyond the traditional on-campus experience. Types of classes offered at Linn-Benton Community College:
Classes where activities are completed strictly online. Most online classes are offered within the college's supported Learning Management System (LMS), Moodle. Each instructor controls the course content and requirements.
It is important to login on the first day of term and access each class to familiarize yourself with the course layout, content, and requirements.
Because there is no set meeting time, students are expected to put in both "in-class" time and "homework time" within their own schedules weekly.
These classes combine traditional face-to-face classroom time with online instruction. On-campus instruction time is reduced anywhere from 20 to 80 percent, and the remainder of the instruction is completed online. Since not all of the instruction is done at a set meeting time, students are expected to put in both the rest of the "in-class" time and "homework time" within their own schedules weekly. Refer to the LBCC Schedule of Classes for meeting times.
The class is assigned a set meeting time and room location on an LBCC campus. Many instructors recognize the benefits of supplementing their class by utilizing a Moodle course shell. Adding accessible course resources, grades, and even electronic textbooks save students time and money.
LBCC utilizes a Single Sign-On process known as My LB, which ensures that the student who registers for a eLearning course or program is the same student who participates in, and completes the course or program and receives the academic credit. The account creation is automatic, and these processes are designed to protect student privacy.
