Online Education

Department Home

Welcome to LACC's Online Education Department!

Online learning is education that takes place over the internet, which can be offered synchronously (meet at a designated time) and/or asynchronously (no required real time meetings). It is a way for students to earn college credits without coming to campus for classes.

Online learning requires students to be self-directed and self-motivated. In this current environment we want to make sure you are prepared for online learning success! Explore the resources on this page to get the most out of the online learning environment.
