NCC Fall Semester
For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.
At NCC, Blackboard is the learning management system that provides you with the online classroom. You access your course by first logging into the NCC Portal. Once you are logged in, click the NCConline icon in the Launchpad which will open Blackboard. Once in Blackboard, click the name of your course.
Online courses are classes in which the course content and instruction are delivered
through the web using the Blackboard learning management system. Although you may not meet your instructor or classmates in person, you will get to
know them very well and communicate frequently. The online classroom is open 24 hours,
7 days a week, and you choose the time of day or evening to access your course. The
course will follow a schedule that has a start and end date with assignment deadlines,
and you must complete your work on time.

Hybrid courses combine face-to-face classroom instruction with online learning using the Blackboard learning management system. The coursework is evenly divided between on-campus classes and web-based learning activities. The demands of the course are the same as a traditional on-campus course.
