Online learning opportunities are only half the equation

The statistics at Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) in Bossier City certainly mirror the national trends. Last fall, some 4,375 “seats” were occupied in online classrooms. Approximately 1,800 of our 7,000 students access online and traditional face-to-face courses. To manage the rapid growth in overall enrollment on campus, we have created a number of hybrid courses that meet in person about one-third of the time and utilize e-learning the remainder of the time. The result is a smarter use of facilities for the college and expanded development of communication competencies for the student. Offering online and other technology-based learning opportunities is only half the equation. Delivering these services with a focus on student service and support is our focus.
