Fresh for Fall – NH’s Community Colleges add new 100% Online Courses
We know our students hold down jobs, raise families, and need convenience when it comes to their college education. 100% online courses help them make it happen.
NH’s community colleges are constantly working to add to the selection of high quality courses that students can take in a 100% online format. This year is no exception, with several new courses added and 367 in all, available in topics as diverse as marketing, criminal procedure, astronomy and French. A full list of 100% online courses can be found at here.
John Duval, police chief in Concord, an adjunct instructor who teaches Crisis Intervention as a 100% online course, said “Having taught students in the classroom since 2004, I am excited at the opportunity to facilitate an interactive and collaborative course fully online. There are rich learning resources available for online learning – resources that even students in a traditional classroom setting don’t routinely access. Students are often surprised by the level of interaction and variety that quality online learning offers. My students will be watching videos, reading current events, interacting on a Discussion Board and creating a class Wiki (interactive website). It’s a very high-quality learning experience accessible and convenient for the students.”
Chief Duval became Concord’s chief in December 2011.
In addition to the 100% online courses, NH’s community colleges also offer 163 courses this fall in a hybrid, or blended, format where part of the course is online and part is in the classroom.
