The mission of the eLearning Department is to facilitate the continued growth and development of distance learning opportunities for a diverse and rapidly changing student population. The department strives to accommodate a wide range of online student needs and learner preferences.


NCTC offered its first three online courses in fall 2000. In the years since, online enrollment and course offerings have grown exponentially. Today over 270 online sections are available.


Students can expect the same high-quality courses online as those taught on-campus. In online courses, students communicate regularly with their instructor and peers through course email, discussion forums, and real-time chats. Click here to see what is expected of you in an online course.
