NORFOLK – Northeast Community College is about to make it much easier for anyone to take high quality, continuing education courses anywhere and at any time. The College is now offering hundreds of online courses on a number of topics from accounting to web design.

“Providing continuing education opportunities at times that are convenient for our constituents is always a struggle,” said Eric Johnson, associate vice president of the Northeast Center for Enterprise. “Offering online coursework, in addition to our traditional classroom courses, will allow our learners to have an opportunity to choose the setting they would like to take the coursework.  This programming will also allow Northeast Community College to significantly expand its offerings and reach all constituents in our service area.”

Johnson said through well-crafted lessons, expert online instruction, and interaction with their peers, students will gain valuable knowledge at their convenience. “Students will have the flexibility to study at their own pace combined with enough structure and support to complete the course. Courses may be accessed 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection.”

New sessions of each six-week online course begin monthly, with two lessons released weekly. Each high-quality course includes comprehensive lessons, quizzes, assignments, and a discussion area. Dedicated instructors are involved in every course; pacing learners, answering questions, giving feedback, and facilitating discussions.  New courses are also introduced monthly, allowing for more opportunities for students to find courses to fit their needs.

Johnson said in addition to online continuing education coursework, traditional face to face courses will be offered on Northeast’ main campus in Norfolk, at its extended campuses in O’Neill, South Sioux and West Point, the customer’s place of business, and at various community locations across Northeast’s 20 county service area.
