Online Orientation Workshop

Online courses provide flexibility that traditional, face-to-face courses can’t. And with your busy life, an online course may be right for you! 
Online classes are very different than in-class, and require students to use a number of digital tools and processes. A new Online Orientation Workshop is now available to help students prepare for success in online courses at Cincinnati State, by providing hands-on experience in the online environment. 
The online workshop is free and self-paced. It takes between 1-3 hours to complete, which you can do over a number of sittings.
