Course Description:

This workshop is an orientation to the requirements and expectations for taking a course through the Internet. It will cover technical considerations, academic issues and time management concerns. There will be a hands-on overview of CCV's portal environment and learning management system. Students must register to attend this free workshop which is required for first-time online students.

Essential Objectives:

1. Identify the web addresses for CCV's public website and college portal and describe the content differences between them.
2. Demonstrate the ability to log in to the college portal and review accuracy of personal contact information.
3. Practice navigation of the college portal by accessing content and entering a practice course.
4. Examine ways of accessing course content to ensure complete review of course materials and college information (e.g. CCV/VSC Service (Help) Desk).
5. Discuss common communication options in online learning (e.g., personal email, messages feature, IM/chat, discussion forum).
6. Differentiate the role of the forum, thread, and reply/quote in the discussion forum, discuss appropriate content and etiquette for the discussion forum, and practice posting new threads and replying to others' threads.
7. Examine ways to complete an assignment (e.g., assignments feature, discussion forum, email) and practice completing a sample assignment and reviewing its grade and feedback.
8. Examine ways to complete tests and quizzes and practice completing a sample quiz and reviewing its grade and feedback.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities: CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please

  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center.
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
