CTC's Central campus will be closed for the holidays December 20, 2021 - December 31, 2021. If you are in a course that ends on December 31, you are expected to participate in the course during the holiday period. Blackboard will be down for annual maintenance from January 1 - 7, 2022. If you are in a current online course, an extra week has been built in for this. Note that publisher products outside of Blackboard, such as MyMathLab, will still be accessible.

Student Evaluation of Classroom Course

Here's what students are saying...

I appreciated the very straightforward approach to this online course. Course material and assignments were organized and assigned appropriately based on current material for each lesson.
This class was awesome. This was an online self paced class. I loved our textbook. It was clear and concise and gave excellent examples. Excellent professor.
The online course materials were very well organized and structured so that it was incredibly easy to access and understand expectations.
I started off face-to-face but found it easier for me to do online due to my other classes being online and my kids not having daycare.
The online textbook was pretty nice, and my professor was very informative on what I needed to improve.
