How do the classes work?

Similar to our Adult Education classes that take place on a local campus, all new students take a placement test to determine their academic level. After completing the placement tests, eLearn students will complete all coursework online (in reading, writing, math, and digital literacy).

 

As stated, instead of having to commute to campus at specific times, you can complete your studies at home and on your own schedule. All you have to do is complete weekly requirements in order to remain in good standing with the program. This means you can study early in the morning, late at night, on weekends, or whenever is convenient for you!

How many hours per week do I need to study?

It’s obviously better to commit yourself to as much studying as possible. But, we understand that you are busy with work and family obligations. So, we require that students commit to 3-5 hours of online studying per week. Remember, you can do this anytime and anywhere. Since all of the coursework can be completed online, you can decide when and where you study (and as long as you have a computer with internet access, you are always ready to connect)! Some of the courses can even be completed on a mobile device!

Can I join the program if I have a mobile device?

While there will be many ways to connect to our online classes using a mobile device, you will also need a computer (laptop or desktop) with internet access in order to complete some of the math and writing coursework. Therefore, the eLearn program can only admit students with reliable computer and internet access.

What do the online classes look like?

The internet is loaded with various resources to help you build your reading, writing, and math skills. eLearn at Delgado utilizes a variety of those resources, including articles, videos, audio files, games, interactive lessons, and discussion boards to keep you connected with and learning alongside your digital classmates.

 

 

In addition to participating in adaptive math classes online and ongoing reading/writing courses, you will also participate in bi-weekly coaching sessions. Your eLearn coach will work with you to set goals, work on time management, and share resources to help you be successful!

 

You will also have the option of designing your own digital literacy project; this could be in the form of building a website, contributing to a blog, creating engaging PowerPoint presentations, or any other computer project you’d like to practice. Your eLearn coach will help you develop this project and its goals.

What if I have a question or encounter a problem? Is there an instructor available to help me?

YES! You will actually be enrolled in a course with other students and an instructor that you can contact as needed. You will be able to chat and email with your fellow classmates, and your instructor will always be available by chat, email, phone, and video conferencing! And, your instructor and coach will be checking in with you on a regular basis to help you stay focused and motivated.

 

 

So, even though the courses are online, you will have a wide range of support available to you including your classmates and our eLearn instructors and tutors!

How long does the program take to complete?

This question is tough to answer since every student is unique, and it also depends on how much effort you put forth. You will have a better idea of how ready you are to take the HiSET exam once you complete the placement testing process. Your academic coach will help you understand your test scores and work with you to set short and long term academic, professional, and personal goals.

 

 

Remember, eLearn at Terrebonne is always free; so regardless of how long it takes you to get fully prepared for the exam, you can stay in the program as long as you want (and as long as you remain in good standing by completing your weekly course requirements).
