Online Course Delivery & Experience
SMCC’s primary method of online course delivery is through Blackboard Learn. Blackboard is a system that offers innovative and engaging technologies that create a comprehensive learning environment. Some courses link from Blackboard to additional technologies and software.
Learning activities are mainly done via discussion boards, assignments, journals and exams. Students are involved in assignments and projects that are both student–to-instructor and student-to-student focused.
