The goal of Academic Advising at Keystone College is to insure that all matriculating students are clearly informed of the requirements of their major. Students should meet with and develop a positive relationship with their academic adviser during their time at Keystone College.
Academic advisers are available to help current students with information about online learning.
Student Expectations for Online Learning
What do you need to know before you make a final decision to register for an online class.
- Students should have regular access to a reliable computer and the Internet. High speed connection is recommended.
- Students will be expected to have knowledge of basic computer skills. Completion of a basic computer course is recommended before enrolling in an online class.
- Students will be expected to have a Keystone Moodle account to access their virtual classroom.
- A valid Keystone e-mail account
All e-mail communication using Blackboard technology is sent to the student's and instructor's Keystone e-mail account only. If you don't check your Keystone e-mail daily, you could be missing important information from your instructors.
- Students will log into their virtual classroom the first day of the semester to begin course work. If you are enrolled as a Weekender student, please keep this in mind.
- Students will complete an orientation assignment the first week of class to confirm their attendance. Students enrolled in more than one online class must complete the orientation assignment for each course. Failure to complete the orientation by the required date will result in being dropped from the class.
- Students will be expected to log in to their virtual classroom several times each week. Online courses require weekly completion of assignments and class discussion. A course schedule for the semester including an outline of assignments, quizzes, tests, and projects will be provided by the instructor for each class.
- Students should expect to spend as much time or more, working on an online course than they would for a face-to-face class. Online courses are more convenient because you can log into your virtual classroom from home, 24/7, however, they require more time to complete course work.
If you're considering taking an online class at Keystone College, and are not currently enrolled, please contact Jennifer Sekol, Associate Director of Admissions, for questions and concerns.
