Online Access (Web Based Learning)

We teach all courses in a traditional classroom and simultaneously in a virtual classroom over the Internet using Cisco Systems’ WebEx technologies. If you cannot join us in the traditional classroom located in central North Carolina (close to UNC, NCSU, and Duke Universities), you can participate in the class from the comfort of your computer at home, work, or on the road. You can see the faculty and every slide or video, hear every word spoken by the faculty and students, observe mathematical or verbal problems solved in real time on the “white board”, and ask questions when you wish. If you miss a class, you can access the digital video recording of the class on the following day over the Internet.

 

WebEx Distance Learning

To participate, all you need is a personal computer and access to the Internet. Students communicate with the instructor by microphone or by Instant Messaging. You do not need a microphone or a web cam to participate

“I have caught up on everything! I have been studying solutions and plan on completing the post-test by this weekend. Thanks again for all the understanding. Wish I could have been in class more but the recordings have been a lifesaver!! — Melissa F, BA, Case Manager, Wake County Government, JD Candidate, North Carolina Central University.

“My back is STILL really bothering me so I will be missing class again tonight. Sitting for long periods of time in the classroom just isn’t an option for me yet. The good thing is that I will be able to spend the weekend and Monday viewing recordings and catching up… once again. I am so glad I have access to the recordings!” — Susan Wilson, Clinical Service Technician, UNC Healthcare

To ensure you can hear and see the instructor via a Live Online web cast, you must join us in a Live Online Practice Session over the Internet prior to the first day of your prep course. After you register and pay for a course, you will receive an electronic mail file titled Course Requirements that contains the date and time of the Practice Class. We usually meet online at 6:00 pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night just prior to the start of a prep course. We will send a password to you that will allow you to access the session that will be located on our Cisco WebEx website https://prepsuccess.webex.com. A different password will be sent to access the actual prep course. The practice class is mandatory for Live Online students. If you miss the scheduled practice class, you will not receive the password to access your prep course. Students who purchase recordings do not need to attend the practice session.

If you have questions concerning Web Based Learning, call us at 919-791-0810 between 9 am and 4 pm.
