General Information about Online Learning at COD

Online learning is convenient, flexible and exciting. More than 300 courses are offered online and lead to a number of certificates and associate degrees that can be earned entirely online. If you are a first-timer, you might ask how online courses compare to classroom-based courses.

COD Online uses the Blackboard Learning System. It is a web-based learning environment where students access course material, receive instruction, interact with instructors and fellow students, and complete assignments and tests. Find out more about Blackboard.

No campus visit is necessary for most online courses. Some courses may require proctored tests either on-campus or at a pre-arranged testing facility. Some courses may offer a face-to-face orientation or require an on-campus activity. Find out more about this. For hybrid courses, students can expect to spend at least 50% of their course time on campus, though exact requirements differ by course.

To help with course selection, a course summary is available online for most courses. The summary includes course description and information about required course material, course activities, evaluation and grading policies. Find a course summary.

The online faculty directory provides phone numbers and e-mail addresses of COD's online faculty. Want to contact an instructor? Check out a current list of online faculty.
