Something for Everyone

Thinking about learning online? Do you live far from campus? Are you working full-time or have a busy family life and need some scheduling flexibility? Do you have an accessibility need? Online learning at the Mount offers something for everyone.

Not all online classes are the same. We offer different formats to meet your needs. Some of our online courses require you to join a weekly meeting at a scheduled time, while other classes are self-paced.

Moodle

Moodle is the Mount's Learning Management System. It provides a place where students can access course content, submit assignments, complete activities, and communicate with their peers and their instructor. We use Moodle to enhance both on-campus and online courses.   

Please note that courses will not be available in Moodle until the first day of term.  

 

Blackboard Collaborate

Blackboard Collaborate is our online classroom software. It provides a virtual space where students can meet in real-time with their class, work in groups, chat, and learn together. You can practice using Blackboard Collaborate before your class begins, and to test your audio and video settings.
