In Fall 2013, Open Entry classes will begin upgrading to Microsoft Office 2013 and Windows 8. We will start to phase this in with our Level I Office 2013 classes in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. As we phase this in, we will have all brand new textbooks and continue to use the Canvas platform to deliver our classes. We will continue to offer the complete Office 2010 classes through Fall 2013 as well.
What Is Open Entry
Open-Entry classes provide students with a convenient and flexible way to take college credits without traditional classroom instruction. Students can work at their own pace on business or personal computer applications online, at home or in an open computer lab environment. There are no regularly scheduled classes or lectures.
Open Entry classes differ from the traditional "in classroom" classes in that they are not semester based. You will be assigned a specific start and end date depending on when you register. You will be given a certain number of weeks to complete your assignments (6 weeks for a .5 credit class, 12 weeks for a 1 credit class, 15 weeks for a 2 credit class and 16 weeks for a three credit class). There are no due dates—just the assigned end date. Almost every Monday is a new start date.
