Moodle is BRTC’s current online course management system. All online, hybrid and technologically enhanced courses will be offered on Moodle. Many on-campus classes utilize Moodle to display students’ current grades, post syllabi and course documents, and provide an area for students to talk outside of class. All students, even those not in an online course, can access Moodle. Some faculty advisors communicate with their advisees via Moodle. You can access Moodle via myBRTC or your smart device (Android | iOS).
For an introduction to Moodle, download the Moodle User Guide for Students.
Online classes are offered completely over the internet and are not easier than on-campus classes. In fact, they usually take more time. To see if online classes are for you and for a list of required skills, visit the DE requirements information on the DE website. Visit the online student orientation page to find out more about online learning.
Many instructors offer hybrid courses, courses that present at least 50% of the course material online. Because of the online material, these courses do not meet as frequently as traditional on-campus courses.
A CVN course is held via compressed video. While students attend classes on campus, the instructor may either be in the classroom or be broadcast to students via television from a remote site.
