Online Learning Support

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.  Many online and hybrid courses at KCC are taught by certified Master Online Teachers​.

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.

​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.
