The "What" of Online courses

GHC Online vs. WAOL classes: What's the difference?
WAOL (Washington Online) courses are taught by instructors from various colleges and are open to students around the state. Because WAOL courses are used by colleges around the state, the schedule for those courses is different than the GHC quarter schedule, with WAOL classes often starting sooner than GHC courses. GHC courses are taught by GHC instructors for GHC students, so they are on the same schedule as our face-to-face classes each quarter.

What is Canvas?
Canvas is the Learning Management System program used by online or hybrid courses at GHC. It is the same LMS used by most of the other public and private colleges and universities in Washington.

What are "Hybrid" Classes? 
Some instructors will utilize Canvas as part of a 'hybrid' course, where students meet face-to-face as well as participate in class online.

What's offered?
The Spring 2014 schedule of online classes is now available for viewing.
