Are You Ready For eLearning?

eLearning Readiness Course - Are you Ready?


The Office of Educational Technology is happy to announce that the "Are You Ready?" course is now available to all our QCC students. The course is listed under "My Organizations" module on the Blackboard Home page. While the course is likely to be most useful to first-time freshmen who have the least familiarity with Blackboard, the course material could also be beneficial to any student who might need a refresher. With this in mind, Are You Ready? has been set up so all students may access the course, including continuing and transfer students, students in pre-college programs such as College Now and Early College Initiative, and students in pre-matriculation programs such as CUNY Start/Math Start.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Educational Technology at with questions or concerns.
