Wake Tech’s online for-credit courses use the Blackboard learning management system.
Online courses are available by key account log-in to Blackboard, providing students with a convenient alternative to traditional on-campus classes. Online courses begin on the first day of the term. Some courses may include required on-campus meetings. Before registration, check the course schedules in WebAdvisor to determine if an instructor requires any on-campus sessions. Students taking online courses must have access to a personal computer with an Internet connection and browser software.
Hybrid courses combine regular classroom meetings with online instruction in Blackboard, reducing the number of hours a class meets on campus. Check the course schedules in WebAdvisor to determine when a hybrid course meets on campus. Students taking a hybrid course must have access to a personal computer with an Internet connection and browser software.
