Your answers to the following questions will help you to decide

 

  • Am I a self-starter and able to motivate myself to work?
  • Can I budget my time, and set schedules for myself, to get work completed on time?
  • Do I have basic computer skills: word processing, internet browsing, e-mail (including sending and receiving attachments)?
  • Can I communicate adequately in writing? Can I understand and follow instructions given in writing?
  • Am I comfortable participating in a class where I am not physically present and may not know the instructor or the other students?
 
If you answered "yes" to most of these questions, chances are you are a good candidate for success in an online course. A few "no" answers to these questions may identify areas that need to be strengthened or addressed, but you may still decide that online learning is a good choice for you.
 
If you answered "no" to many of these questions, this may indicate that your chances for success may be greater in a traditional course setting at this time.
Online courses are structured so that all course content traditionally delivered in the classroom is delivered online.  Course materials may be accessed by means of a Learning Management System (LMS) such as Canvas, the LMS used by Bakersfield Adult School.  Some classes may include online teacher led interactive sessions. The online course syllabus will show the schedule and requirements of the course.

All students will need reliable internet access along with their own personal devices.  Bakersfield Adult School will not be providing each student with phones, mobile devices, tablets, Chromebooks, or any other hardware.

You can access Canvas by going to https://kernhigh.instructure.com/login/ldap or through the Canvas Student phone app.
