Online Education Offerings

Online Education Offerings

Along with Klamath Community College's 50+ online classes and several online degrees and certificates - and in the name of all that is educationally innovative - KCC has a number of new online offerings slated to start fall and winter terms.

This list of courses might interest students seeking classes that fit their own schedules and can be completed from the comfort of their living room couch - or from anywhere else for that matter.

Lab Science for Non-Science Students: For students who wish to satisfy their lab science requirements, KCC now offers non-technical courses in Biology, Environmental Science, and Physics completely online. These courses are geared toward students who aren’t planning on a career in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) areas, yet require a basic science course. Minimal math is required for these transferable, credit classes, and there are low fees and a cost-effective and easy-to-use lab kit for meaningful, highly engaging experiments. Take any of these courses when and where you like – in-home, online, anywhere!

Community College and Online College Instruction Courses: For educators at any level looking to expand their skill set to include instruction at the community college level or in the online environment, these new, completely online classes are for you. If you’re have time this summer, consider enrolling in one of these classes now. After taking these classes, you’ll be able to take on added instruction responsibilities in your spare time, by teaching face-to-face community college courses in the late afternoon or evening or instructing classes completely online.

Online World Language Academy (OWLA): Klamath Community College is currently building a webpage on its website to house a new Online World Language Academy (OWLA) in support of four completely online, two-year language programs for two European (French and German) and two Asian languages (Chinese and Japanese). The new webpage is scheduled to go live in early July, 2015. Currently, no other college or university in Oregon is offering these languages completely online.
 
The following information will be made available on the new webpage:
 
·         Course descriptions and course learning outcomes
·         Calendar of course offerings – two-year schedule
·         Online language faculty profiles
·         Tips on how to study a language online
·         Links to language learning resources
·         List of prerequisites and requirements for testing into courses
·         Brief history, geographic locations, and uses of each language
·         Instructions on how to be admitted to the College and register for a class 
 
If these four languages are successful attracting students in Oregon, the Pacific Northwest, and nationwide, the College plans to gradually add more languages, including the following: Arabic, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian), and Russian.
