You and Online Class Questions
Are Online classes right for me and my schedule?
Online classes are an opportunity for students to complete classes online without the need to attend class on campus, on specific dates, and at specific times. However, class expectations remain at the same level as on campus classes. Most students find that they must be willing to engage in the learning process to be successful. On campus students can sometimes be quiet in class but online students must be willing to become involved in their classes.
Here is a link to a 12 question assessment on "Assessing your readiness to take an online course?"

What are my Internet access requirements for taking classes?
You must have at least dial up access however your learning environment will be much more enjoyable if you have a high speed Internet access connection.
This connection does not need to be available at home however. You may access our curriculum anywhere in the world including at your work site or a public access location such as a public library.
You do not need to be a computer nerd to take online courses. However basic internet browsing and E-mail skills are a necessity as you will be expected to work with a browser based learning environment tool called Angel Learning Services. Within Angel you will need to be able to complete and submit assignments using a built-in E-mail client. You will also need to be able to complete discussions and tests while working with the Angel browser environment. You may also need to be able to use some browser add-in programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. If you have technical questions you may contact our
technical support line. We also suggest taking the "Online Aptitude Assessment" to see if you are ready for our online classes. There are online tutorials that will help you learn how to use the learning environment as well. Here is a link to the
On-line Quick Start Guide.
ANGEL is designed to support the widest variety of client-side operating systems and
client-side browsers through its limited use of client-side technologies. While ANGEL
products generally function well in many browsers, the following are formally supported
Yes, students are expected to complete the same
rigor and class requirements as On Campus students. The instructors
use the same syllabi's and the class lengths are the same. However

the course work during the week its assigned. The classes are taught
by NCKTC Instructors and you receive the same credit as on campus
