eLearning - Who

The Jones eLEARNING program has removed the barriers of location and time, making a college education accessible and affordable.  If you do not have the flexibility to attend traditional on-campus classes then online courses are for you!  Distance education allows everyone the opportunity to access higher education.   

eLEARNING at Jones comes to you in the form of Canvas with educational support for each student.  Students will work independently at their own pace and interact through various communication tools and technologies.  Except for exams, regular campus attendance is not required.

eLearning - Who Where?
The joy and benefit of online courses is that they can be completed anywhere, as long as you have a computer and internet connection. Proctor exams are the only time you have to come to campus. They will be taken in the Academic Support Building, room 119, and if you ever have any trouble you can walk right around the corner and talk to a eLearning specialist in room 129!

eLearning - Who When?
You can complete your courses whenever is convenient for you! Courses are usually presented in a weekly format, so as long as you complete your assignments for that week, it doesn't matter what time of day you do them!
You should keep in mind that fully online courses taught through Jones last fifteen weeks in the fall and spring and eight weeks in the summer. Normally classes begin the week after traditional classes begin. You can view the MSVCC Calendar for specific dates for each semester.
