What to expect when taking a BCD class through Chemeketa Community College

These self-paced classes are available to you online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can decide if you want to take the whole course, usually somewhere between 3 and 8 hours long, in one session or come back to the class several times to finish the work. Each course costs $35 dollars.

The course structure is set up in succession; you need to finish the first lesson before you can continue to the second lesson. There are short quizzes at the end of each lesson that you need to complete before the next lesson becomes available. Be sure to take advantage of all the parts of a lessons, presentations, videos, etc., before you take the quiz. The system keeps track of all the time you spend in each lesson.


Chemeketa Quarter Schedule

Because Chemeketa Community College is on a quarter system, our courses will be unavailable during their quarter breaks. You must complete the course you are registered for before the end of the quarter you registered in. For example; if you registered to take the 2010 OSSC Chapter 11 Accessibility Revisions course in the Spring of 2013 quarter you would have until June 15, 2013 to complete the course. If you do not finish the course within this time period you will either not get continuing education credits for the course or re-register (paying the $35 again and start the course from the beginning).

BCD is working with the college to continue services for our courses during these breaks. Please keep this quarter schedule in mind when taking a self-paced course until we are successful in changing the access to our classes.

Course Communications

The way communication between student and instructor is achieved within the Chemeketa eLearn system is through a Chemeketa email (Gmail) account. We find that most of the students in our courses do not use this system and we have no communication access to them. We would appreciate it if you would set up your Chemeketa email account and then have it forwarded to your regular email. That way we can use the Chemeketa email system to communicate with you, but the emails will be forwarded to your regular email. Use these detailed instructions to set up your Chemeketa email account and then forward it to your regular email.
