Technology is changing every aspect of our lives, including how we learn. Today’s teachers do more than convey information—they engage with students to create an interactive, immersive learning environment.
“This is what electronic learning is about,” says Dr. Diana Zilberman, Director of E-Learning at BCCC. “We’re not focused on the technology, but on the students. We want students to feel they are part of a community of learning through the use of familiar technology.”
Computer technology permeates all BCCC classes, including traditional courses, to make learning interactive. Mobile compatibility, multimedia, and video tools result in courses that are immersive and content rich. Well-trained faculty and outside peer review ensure rigorous, high-quality curriculum. Most students say their E-Learning experience made them feel they were part of a community of learning.
Nearly two thousand BCCC students take online or blended “hybrid” courses each year, adding a new level of flexibility to the college experience that was impossible even a decade ago. In fact, BCCC now offers 325 online or hybrid course options, up from just 13 in 2002.
“Students who have jobs or are busy with families may want to take on-campus classes, but there are costs like gas or babysitting,” Zilberman notes. “Now they can take courses online.”
“Saying ‘I don’t have time’ is no longer a good excuse. Now you can put your kids to bed, and work when you do have time,” she adds. “We bring education to you.”
