CLC Live Online

Live Online

CLC will be offering a wide selection of courses through our Live Online delivery system in 2017-2018.  Live Online classes are delivered through the web, so students can attend in person or online. Live or recorded classes can be accessed through Brightspace (D2L), the CLC online learning management system.CLC LIve Online

Each student can choose how they would like to “attend” class: In person (being physically present in the classroom with the instructor and other students), or live on the web (tuning in during the class time and interacting in real time with the instructor and other students). Live Online classes do require real time attendance, either in person or online.

Classes are also recorded for later viewing. This allows students to catch a missed class or review a lecture. This innovative method of education allows more flexibility as students balance jobs and family with their courses. Employees may choose to tune into a class during their lunch hour at work, or high school students may take a college class without leaving their high school campus. Students should check with their instructors regarding the specific attendance requirements of a particular Live Online course.

All that’s needed to “attend” class is a computer or mobile device/tablet with a webcam and a microphone and an internet connection. Real time communication between instructors and students will result in a richer experience than taking a traditional online class, and lead to student success.

Liberal Arts Classes
Liberal arts classes offered via Live Online this year are in the disciplines of Accounting, Communication, Earth Science, Engineering, English, Math, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology and Spanish. Most of these classes are part of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum, and all of the classes apply to the two-year transferable Associate of Arts degree

Healthcare Administrative Specialist Program
All courses within the Healthcare Administrative Specialist program, excluding one course, will be available in either the CLC Live Online format or online format.
Previous courses that require some face-to-face in-class meetings will still be offered, but now will be expanded and offered in a real-time online format. Student can log-in during the class meeting and participate in class from the comfort of their homes or their work stations. Courses offered in the Live Online format will be recorded for limited viewing for the rare times when students miss a class or for content viewing to help review the information discussed for increased student success. There is only one course that will require you to come in two days a week for one semester within the program. This ensures the foundational content is established for student success.
