DMACC Online Career Academy Guidelines
Below links are viewable on school guidance page, “College - Online”
Panorama HS Follows These DMACC Guidelines
Are your students ready for an online class? - Please, students that have not taken an online class with DMACC before, complete the Online Readiness Self-Assessment at https://www.dmacc.edu/online/self-assessment/Pages/self-assessment.aspx
Your score will be an indicator to whether they may be ready for an online course at DMACC. It is critical that students are self- motivated and have good time management skills in order to be successful in these courses.
Resources - We also have important tutorial videos for students as they get started in courses. Face to face orientations will also be available for students to attend prior to the semester. Please visit the following link https://dmacc.blackboard.com/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp
to access a number of great resources including:
Starting Reminder - Students will not be able to access their course until the first day of class. Students should login to their class on that day. Students may be dropped from their class if they do not participate in their class during the first week. DMACC can track when students log into courses and how much time they spend in a course.
Attention Chromebook Users! - Accessing DMACC online course material such as videos, tests, quizzes, assignments and other Blackboard content in general, may NOT be compatible with Chromebooks. Java is required to display and interact with Blackboard but Chromebooks do not support this technology. It is not recommended to rely solely on a Chromebook to complete your DMACC online course. Another computer such as a school PC, home computer, library computer, etc may be needed at various times throughout the semester to complete your work. Having only a Chromebook is NOT an acceptable excuse for missed work.
Time Management - time needed for student to successfully complete college courses is noted by the credits earned, as most courses earn 3 college credits, those earning 4 or 5 credits require more reading and/or writing by the students
