Student Resources - Tip #5

Student Resources - Tips for Successful Learning at MCC

Tip #5: How do your classes work?
All of our classes are hosted online on our website.

Our Traditional Workshop courses are instructor-led. This means that the instructor is present in the classroom for questions, comments and, in some classes, critiques of students' work. Most of our courses run 2 to 4 weeks. Generally speaking, the instructor will post new course content once a week until the course is complete. You will receive an email when each lesson is ready for viewing. You then have the entire week to review the materials, ask questions, and complete your assignments. Previous course content remains available as you move from week to week. A few of the classes are 1 week courses with several lesson topics. In those classes, all of the course materials are open on the start date of the course.

The classroom materials include printable/downloadable PDF tutorials and slideshow presentations and/or video demonstrations. Forums and a student gallery(called the Praise Forum) are available inside each classroom so you can interact with the instructor and fellow students.

In Self-Paced Workshops, all the course information is open upon registration so students can work at their own pace. Forums and student gallery (the Praise Forum) are available for communication with the instructor and other students. Course materials are of the same type as our traditional workshops (see above).

Library courses feature retired classes that are now 40% - 50% off their original price. In these courses, all class materials are visible upon registration and the instructor is available for questions via email. Students have access to Library courses for a total of 60 days from enrollment.



There are certain questions and pleas for help that I hear most often while answering emails at the MCC support desk (support.mcc@gmail.com). During the coming weeks, I'll be sharing answers to some of the most common and uncommon questions I've received to help you navigate the MCC website and make your time here more enjoyable. smile

Tip #13
:
Viewing Flash Videos on your iPad or other tablet device
Got an iPad? Yes, we do love our technology, don't we? When accessing MCC using your iPad, or other similar device, you may have discovered that there are some things in your classrooms that you just can't see. The problem is, that unfortunately at this time, Apple does not support Flash videos. But no worries...there is an app for that! smile

There are several apps available that will enable you to view Flash videos.
Kim Parkinson, MCC faculty, has prepared a quick YouTube video that will show you how to use the Photon app with our website. (Thanks, Kim!)

I've received feedback from students who are using this app with their iPad and they have been very satisfied. Check it out!
