For many of us, e-learning occurs amidst busy work schedules, family priorities, and other challenges. ECC delivers a high-quality academic experience for students enrolled in online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses to meet all students' needs. We connect students to on-campus support services and student life programming through Campus Central, D2L, Remote Hub, and Social Channels.

Strategies to thrive in your online classes

  • Successful online students become experts at defining their priorities and building (and keeping) a schedule that allows them to focus on the most important things to them.
  • Spending a little time upfront getting and staying organized in your online classes will save you time throughout the semester and help keep your stress levels low.
  • Think of the discussion board of an online class as the heart of the classroom.
  • Practicing good "Netiquette" means adhering to certain online behaviors to know about and practice.
  • Success in college (and, honestly, success in life) is primarily based on consistently following the goals and aspirations we set for ourselves.
  • Cultivate curiosity in all you do for school, and watch as that curiosity "pulls" you through the difficult moments.

What Support and Resources Are Available for Online Learning?

Many student support services, such as academic advising, tutoring, and wellness services, are accessible remotely, eliminating the necessity to visit the campus. Explore our support services.

Chromebooks are available for checkout at the Library. If you need it for classes at ECC, let us know at

If you need Wi-Fi for your studies, learn more about affordable or free wi-fi options for students.

Is an Online Degree or Certificate Right for Me?

Starting an online program gives you the flexibility to switch back to a traditional degree path or add in some in-person classes if your learning preferences change. At ECC, we provide choices, such as online, hybrid, and in-person classes, so you can pick the learning style that fits you best. If you’re not sure if an online program is the right choice, you can try a couple of online classes or take a free Study Skills Survey from the Online Assessment System for Internet Students.
