eLearning Student Information

What is eLearning?

Everett Community College offers a variety of courses outside the traditional classroom setting that may be taken in whole or in part at a distance from the college campus.  Courses are taught by experienced EvCC faculty and the content and credit are equivalent to traditional courses taught on campus.  Whether you take one course or three courses a quarter, eLearning may be just what you are looking for.

For more information about eLearning at Everett Community College, please contact the eLearning office at 425.388.9367, toll free 1.866.575.9027, or email us at elearning@everettcc.edu.

Am I ready for online learning?

  • Plan to spend 10 to 15 hours on assignments per week for each course. Some courses also require you to attend a classroom session a few times during the quarter.
  • Online classes require a high level of motivation and self-discipline, and you may spend more hours on coursework than you would if you took the same course in a classroom.

To determine if online learning is right for you, ask yourself these questions:
I can organize my time well, even when managing multiple demands.
I have good reading and writing skills.
I use the Internet, e-mail and word processing software regularly.
I can spend 10-15 hours a week on each class.
I enjoy working independently.
If you answered "yes" to most of these statements, online courses may be a good option for you.
