Electronic Learning Classes are offered to and designed for well-disciplined students who are capable of handling independent study. All McNeese convenient study “CS” classes and web-based hybrid “WH” classes require some on-campus classroom obligations and assignments. The on-campus meeting times and/or dates and locations can be obtained from Class Search (available on the Schedule website, Banner Self-Service, and MyMcNeese Portal). All web based courses marked with a “W” are strictly online. Electronic learning courses have fees in addition to regular registration fees. For questions about any of these classes, call 475-5075 or email the professor if listed or contact the department.
Convenient Study (CS)
Convenient Study (CS) classes offer students a convenient option of course preparation and study. Classes consist of a complete series of lessons either available online, through Electronic Learning or by DVDs that may be rented or viewed in the MSU library. Some on-campus meeting times are required (see course listing).
Compressed Video Classes (CZ, CV)
Compressed video courses offer students an opportunity to receive credit from McNeese or other Louisiana universities by attending class at one of the on-campus sites, or at one of the off-campus sites in Allen, Jeff Davis or Beauregard or Vermillion parishes. Compressed video involves two-way, full motion video and audio that closely replicates a traditional face-to-face class. Electronic fees ($20 per credit hour) will be administered for all off-campus “CZ” courses. Refer to course listings marked section “CV” (on-campus) or “CZ” (off-campus) to register for these courses.
Internet or Web-Based Classes (W or WH)
Internet or web-based classes are offered in several departments and allow students to access class information and assignments from home or at times that might be more convenient to the student. Web classes are often used to supplement traditional classes or other distance courses. Some on-campus meeting times or designated testing sites may be required for web hybrid “WH” classes. Electronic fees ($20 per credit hour) will be administered for all web classes. Web classes “W” are strictly online classes and require no meeting times on campus. Refer to class listings marked section “W or WH” to register for these web classes.
More information is available in the course sections or from the instructors. When the classes begin, they may be accessed from the Blackboard link on the MyMcNeese Portal. All new students are assigned user IDs and passwords for Blackboard at the start of their first semester or during late registration.
Class Search (available on the Schedule website, Banner Self-Service, and MyMcNeese Portal) allows students to “Show web courses only” in the search for classes. To view web courses only, click on Class Search, select the semester and click on “Submit Query.” On the next page, do not restrict the search in any way other than to mark the check box for “Show web courses only.” This will return all available web courses for the selected semester.
