Welcome to Knights Online, our online eLearning community at Louisiana Delta Community College. Online classes give you access to learning opportunities outside of the traditional way of attending college. We believe you should be able to participate in class in a way that is convenient for you. Our goal is to enable your success in taking courses to transfer to a university, or in earning a degree or certificate in a fast-growing job field. LDCC online courses offer the same excellent instruction that you find in our face-to-face classes. Each course supports quality, accessibility, and flexibility to meet your needs, whether you are a traditional college student or a working adult juggling a job and family.
What is Knights Online?
Knights Online is our eLearning area that supports you from the time you are a prospective student through transfer or graduation. You can take online courses using your computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone by logging on to Canvas, Delta’s Learning Management System. (https://ladelta.instructure.com) When logging into Canvas, use your LoLA username and password. Additionally, many instructors of the traditional classroom courses taught at LDCC use Canvas to enhance face-to-face courses.
Online Course Requirements
- Online courses require more self-discipline and probably more of your time than traditional on-campus classes. You should expect to spend anywhere from 8 -10 hours per week per online course. Remember, it is necessary for you to be self-motivated with proper study and time management skills when taking online courses.
- If you decide to take an online course at LDCC, you will be required to complete orientation about how to use the Canvas platform. The link to that training certificate is https://www.softchalkcloud.com/lesson/serve/3WpcjrQ8kwR9EL/html. Instructors should provide this orientation in the Start Here area of each online course taught at LDCC.
- Finals for online classes are online, with some courses like math and science requiring Proctor U for monitoring of your taking quizzes, exams, and finals. In the course syllabus, your instructor will give you the information that you need about online testing.
