Online classes ... it's called eLearning now!
Welcome to eLearning at East Mississippi Community College, offered through the Mississippi Virtual Community College. The eLearning Department provides educational opportunities for students by utilizing technology in, or out of, the classroom. EMCC offers two varieties of eLearning for students seeking alternatives to traditional classroom instruction. eLearning occurs when the instructor and the learner are separated by time and/or location. This site is designed to help you get a start in eLearning.
Keep in mind, taking online classes requires self-discipline. You've got to set your own schedule and push through to the end. EMCC wants your online class experience to be successful, and you should understand the differences and similarities between online classes and traditional classes.
