About Online Credit Courses
Online credit courses are accessible using a standard web browser. The online credit courses are equivalent to on-campus courses and maintain the same academic standards. Each course is managed by a qualified Metropolitan Community College instructor who provides information, guides you, prompts discussion, helps with your assignments, answers your questions and grades your work.

MCC’s credit online, hybrid and web-enhanced courses are delivered via a Learning Management System called Blackboard. Blackboard is a website that provides a user-friendly way for teachers to place course materials, interactive and/or collaborative activities, and assessments online. Students have an intuitive way to interact with the course materials and with other students.
With Blackboard, students can upload files to submit assignments, post messages to forums, take tests and more. Students can check their progress and grades at any time during the course.
