What is an online class (WEB)? 
An online class meets 100 percent online using the Camvas LMS. You will not have a meeting time or a classroom location. All of your work and testing will be done online.

What is a hybrid class?
A hybrid class will meet online and onsite. Typically you will have class onsite (at either the Mid City Campus or one of our instructional sites) at least a few times during the semester. The rest of the time the class will "meet" virtually using the Canvas LMS. 

When am I able to log into my Canvas account and look at my course information?
You are able to log in on the first day of class. You should check your Canvas account daily for updates related to all of your courses.

I want to send my instructor an email. Where can I find an email address?
If you are trying to send your instructor an email before the semester has started, you can search for your instructor on the BRCC Directory page. If you are trying to send your instructor an email once the semester has started, you can use the email feature on Canvas.

I am having technology related problems. Where do I go for help?
You have two basic options. The first is the BRCC IT Help Desk. The second (and usually better option since it is monitored 24/7) is by using the help feature on Canvas. This button is located on the far left of your Canvas screen. If you do not receive the assistance you were looking for, you might want to ask a classmate through the Canvas email feature.

Those options are located here.
