MACC utilizes Canvas to deliver online courses. Students are expected to participate in a variety of ways including posting in threaded discussions, reading, watching or listening to lectures, and submitting assignments in Canvas. Online courses are offered each fall, spring, and summer semester. There is not a set time students must access the course. However, students must actively participate each week and meet assignment deadlines specified by the instructor.
Online class sizes are comparable to MACC's face-to-face courses. Some online courses require proctored examinations, which are exams given at one of our campuses or in a monitored setting by an approved Non-MACC proctor.
Many college resources are available to MACC students online. Our Library and Academic Resource Center (LARC) provides virtual tutoring by appointment via Blackboard Collaborate and 24/7 online tutoring via Smarthinking. MACC's Kate Stamper Wilhite Library is accessible via the MACC website and boasts several electronic databases and resources for student research. Additional resources are available in Canvas through the Student Resources Course, including an eLibrarian which offering students a direct link to library personnel.
Additional programs are available at other locations.
