WJCC offers a number of courses online for initial credit, remediation, and credit recovery. All online courses are aligned to the Virginia Standards of Learning and are facilitated by a highly qualified, licensed teacher.

Online learning provides students with greater  flexibility of learning according to:

  • Location – where learning takes place and where the student and teacher are located
  • Time – when the learning takes place and how long a student takes to learn content
  • Mastery of content – students demonstrating their content mastery in a variety of ways
  • Delivery of Content – content provided to students in a different format
  • Purpose – used for initial credit, remediation, and credit recovery

Students may be enrolled in an online class in lieu of or in addition to a traditional, face-to-face class for a number of reasons. Regardless of those reasons, careful and honest evaluation of student readiness for an online course should be considered.

Is online learning right for me?

To be successful in an online class, students typically need to possess certain motivational characteristics and independence. The following characteristics will help enable students to be successful:

  • Self-disciplined
    While on-line courses allow a great deal of flexibility for a student, they require more independence and self-monitoring. The online learner must be able to stay on task, start and finish assignments in a timely manner without someone keeping you focused, and follow course modules and meet deadlines.
  • Organized
    Even though you may not have to be in class on a specific day and at a specific time, the online learner will need to follow course modules provided by the instructor and stay on task daily. Scheduling specific times during the day to login and study is important to the success of online learning. Never wait until the last minute to complete assignments.
  • Committed
    This will require dedication on the student’s part. Keeping up with class and completing and submitting all work on time is critical.  It is easy to get behind and an even greater challenge to catch up. When a question arises, seek the support and assistance of the instructor.
  • Critical Thinker
    Learning requires a process in which the online learner will make decisions about their own learning and experiences. The learner will need to analyze and evaluate the subject matter, raise questions, think open-mindedly and figure out solutions to complex problems.
  • Proactive
    Successful online learners take responsibility for their own learning. In fact, the successful online learner takes control of a situation and asks questions before it’s too late.
  • Computer Literate and Unlimited Computer and Internet Access
    The online learner will need basic knowledge of computers and internet skills in order to be successful in an online course. This will require on-going access to a laptop/computer, an internet connection and an up-to-date web browser.
