Distance Learning allows students to make their course schedule more flexible. Students will use a web-browser to log in to Cleveland Community College's course management system, Blackboard. Blackboard is designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complete face-to-face teaching. Also, Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, virtual chat, online quizzes, an academic resource center, and more.

IMPORTANT: Please note that if you do not login to your online course during the first week, you may be dropped from the course. Check your “class schedule” for each course’s “start” and “end” dates.

State Authorization Requirements
- State Authorization for Distance Education Programs and Students
- Federal and State Regulations on "State Authorization" of Distance Education
All U.S. States require post-secondary educational institutions to be legally authorized to provide post-secondary educational instruction in their states. Many of these state laws and regulations also apply to online, distance and correspondence educational instruction offered in that state. As such, Cleveland Community College and its online/distance education programs must be authorized in certain states prior to offering those courses or programs to students residing in those states.
The State Authorization Regulation Chapter 34, + 600.9(c) "If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be legally offering distance or correspondence education in that State. An institution must be able to document to the Secretary the State's approval upon request."
The College reserves the right to refuse enrollment to any student wishing to enroll in online courses if the student resides in a state where Cleveland Community College is not authorized to offer distance education.
