Online Learning Support

KCC uses Canvas Learning Management System for online courses. If you are new to Canvas or need assistance, please review the links to the left.

Check out a preview of the Canvas LMS in this Canvas Overview video. If you are a faculty member, you can find more information at the Teaching & Learning Center site.

How do I register for an online course?

The registration process is the same for online courses as it is for all KCC courses. For more information on registration, review steps to enroll in classes.

What is meant by online and hybrid?

In general, when you enroll in online or hybrid courses, be ready to participate online—asking and answering questions, taking part in discussions, and completing tests.

Online course: All content/instruction is online and accessible through the Canvas course management system. There is regular and substantive interaction between students and the instructor. You can finish an online course without coming to KCC’s campus. A pre-approved proctor may be required to take tests/assessments.

Hybrid course: Instruction/content is a combination of face-to-face meetings at KCC and other (often online) means. Generally, 30 percent or more of the instruction/content is online or off-campus. When possible, face-to-face meeting dates are in the class schedule. 

Technology requirements

You need a reliable Internet connection (high-speed). Also required are basic computing skills, including word processing and Internet navigation.

Email helpdesk@kcc.edu or phone 815-802-8900 for information about technology requirements.
