NSCC's COVID-19 response: view updates

Prepare to learn online

Taking courses online has lots of advantages and your experience is different than learning in class. We offer a range of student services and learning supports. Before you decide to study online through eCampus, there are some things to consider.

Ensure you have the technology you need

You need access to high-speed internet and a computer that meets your program’s technology requirements.

Learn to manage your time

With some courses and programs, you don’t have specific class times. You need to manage your time independently so you meet deadlines for your assignments, assessments and evaluations.

Plan to spend approximately eight hours per week on each of your courses. Students who schedule a few hours each day for their studies tend to find the online learning experience more enjoyable; they also have greater levels of success.
