Online classes are done in a virtual environment through a program called Blackboard. You can access the Blackboard program through Schoolcraft’s website by clicking Blackboard at the top of the main Schoolcraft webpage. This program allows access to all the course information including the syllabus, course requirements, instructor email, as well as, email addresses of other students registered for the class. The courses are structured courses that have deadlines for assignments, discussions, exams and quizzes, term papers, and reports. Please refer to the software & hardware requirements for each class. Most classes do not meet during the course. There are a few classes that require campus visits for exams. Please refer to the special requirements for certain classes.
