Sessions & Fast Tracks

Sessions 1, Session 2, and Session 3 may be available in the classroom, as a hybrid, online, and/or via iTV. Sessions that are shorter in length may have the same requirements/expectations as a full term course.

Fast Track courses run for 5 weeks and are available online only. Courses may have the same requirements/expectations as a full term course, but condensed to 5-weeks. It is strongly recommended that
only one fast track course is taken at a time as the workload is concentrated.

Visit bc3.edu/credit-schedule to view available courses in each session and fast track.

Course Types

Classroom
A classroom course requires on-campus attendance during scheduled meeting times.

Hybrid
A hybrid course is an online course, but also requires four or more campus meetings. Campus meetings are scheduled in advance by the instructor and may be used for any combination of lectures, discussions, presentations, labs, examinations, etc. An orientation to online courses (GENL 001 - ET Orientation) is required.

Online
An online course uses the internet, Blackboard (BC3’s Learning Management System), and other webbased applications for all instruction, activities, assessments, and course interaction. An orientation to online courses (GENL 001 - ET Orientation) is required.

iTV
An iTV course is taught in a classroom by one instructor, but delivered to two separate locations simultaneously using video or web conferencing technology. iTV courses may require assignments and tests be completed online outside of the regular class time through Blackboard.
