Quality Matters at LCCC
Lorain County Community College is committed to implement the Quality Matters standards for the design of online and hybrid courses, and we are systematically building and evaluating our courses based on these rigorous, research-supported standards. The Quality Matters standards assure that the online components of these courses promote learner engagement and provide students with all the tools and information they need to be successful learners. More information regarding Quality Matters may be found at http://www.qmprogram.org/.
LCCC offers more than 500 sections of online and web-blended classes every semester. If you are motivated and self-directed these “Distance Learning” classes can be a convenient way to receive your education on your own time.
LCCC is one of Ohio’s leading colleges delivering quality online classes. Many online students are adults who have full-time jobs and families. Distance learning is often most beneficial to students who are motivated, goal oriented, disciplined and are able to work alone. However, anyone can be a successful distance learner if they have the drive and desire to succeed. LCCC is committed to advancing creative learning opportunities: any time, any place.
LCCC’s associate of arts degree may be completed entirely via the Internet. Students can also complete an associate of arts degree by taking a combination of online, web-blended and on-campus classes. All modes of distance learning delivery have certain access requirements, and each instructor may have special requirements for his/her course section. If you are registering through MyCampus you can find these requirements in the notes field for that section.
Online Course Offerings
LCCC offers approximately 300 fully online courses in many exciting fields. To enroll, all you need is access to a computer with a full-service connection to an Internet provider. You should also have strong computer skills, including word processing, the Internet, and e-mail. You can identify LCCC’s fully online courses by a “W” in the section number (e.g. W100, W660). At the start of your first online course you will have the opportunity to assess your computer skills to help determine if an online course is right for you.
LCCC also offers a growing number of web-blended courses for which students spend less time on campus. A portion of the course (e.g., the lab) is on campus with the rest (e.g., the lecture) delivered online. In such classes, the time spent on-campus is at least 50% shorter than a typical on-campus class. These courses are distinguished by a “B” in the section number (e.g. B100, B101).
