Online learning: A powerful tool to build education equity
E-learning is not just a convenient option for today’s college student, it is a necessary and productive alternative to traditional classroom instruction. At Borough of Manhattan Community College, The City University of New York (BMCC/CUNY), student demand for online courses is growing.
More than half our students work part or full time, and online courses are easier to wrap around their work schedule than a class they attend on campus.
Online instruction also helps student parents avoid the cost of childcare for when they are in class, and it enables students to pace their learning in a way that supports their strengths.
