Online Learning or e-Learning refers to courses in which content is delivered via the internet, and requires students to complete coursework online on a Course Management System (CMS), Blackboard. Students who are enrolled in an online course use their CUNYfirst account to log into and access their courses on Blackboard at any time of day.
Hundreds of online courses have been offered at Hostos Community College, and this number is steadily increasing, with more faculty and students opting to engage in online learning. As of Fall 2019, there are 54 asynchronous courses and 60 hybrid courses being offered at Hostos.
What is an Asynchronous Course?
In asynchronous courses, all class activities take place online. Students participate by logging into Blackboard at their convenience. Students are expected to complete all readings, assignments, tests, and discussions online.
What is a Hybrid Course?
In hybrid courses, class activities are split between online and face-to-face meetings in a classroom. For the online meetings, students participate by logging into Blackboard at their convenience.
