Welcome to Ogeechee Technical College’s Online Learning Site!
At Ogeechee Technical College, we believe in offering programs and courses in multiple formats to meet the needs of our students. Courses may be offered in a traditional face-to-face format, hybrid, or online. The beauty of online learning is that students have the flexibility to complete assignments on their own time within the class schedule. This means it’s perfectly okay to work in your pajamas!
Is Online Learning Right For Me?
Prior to registering for online courses, you should make sure online learning is a good fit for you. The most successful online students are those who are able to work independently and submit assignments on time. This requires self-discipline and basic computer skills. Online classes are not “work at your own pace” classes. You will be responsible for submitting assignments and participating in class discussions according to the course schedule.
Student Technology Skills
Prior to registering for online classes, all students are required to complete the Online Course Orientation and pass the assessment. In addition to being comfortable operating within a technology-based educational environment, possessing basic computer literacy, and being able to perform fundamental computer functions in an efficient manner, online students should be comfortable performing the following tasks:
- Accessing and using the Internet
- Using an account name and password to log onto the course site
- Sending and responding to e-mail
- Sending and receiving files electronically
- Participating in online discussion boards
- Searching websites as well as accessing required Internet-based learning resources
- Applying basic troubleshooting techniques to “fix” hardware and/or software problems as required
Students must also have reliable access to a computer with Internet. Click HERE to check technology and system requirements.
