Online Learning at CCGA
The Department of eLearning provides support, training, and instructional design services for faculty teaching online, hybrid, and technology-enhanced courses using the Brightspace (D2L), the University System of Georgia’s collaborative learning management system.
In addition to support, eLearning staff provide professional development and training opportunities to faculty, offer instructional design consultation, and review online and hybrid courses.
CCGA students may take different types of online courses. For example, a student may register for a CCGA Web course, an online course developed and taught by CCGA faculty. Additionally, students may take an online course through eCore.
eCore—short for electronic core-curriculum—allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to complete their first two years of their collegiate careers in an online environment. eCore courses are taught entirely online, except for the occasional proctored exam. eCore courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the USG. See the eCore website for more information.
