Course Programs via Video-Streaming

Students may either view the streamed videos either from home (requires Internet Broadband Connectivity such as DSL, Cable Modem, or Wireless) or the college libraries.


Online courses require a computer system with an internet connection. SBCCD supports multiple Course Management Software (CMS) packages. The software is specified by the course instructor.

Certain courses may require a CD-ROM drive, speakers or headphones. Please check course requirements. Some computer labs at the campuses may accomodate online students.

Students taking online/ hybrid courses may have to attend 0 to 5 campus meetings per semester.
