Distance learning classes are designed for students whose work and family obligations prevent them from attending a traditional on-campus class at a set day/time every week. If you want the flexibility of pursuing your college education "without walls", then consider a distance learning course.
Through the Internet the whole world becomes a classroom.
After you have registered and paid for the course, you will be able to login to your course on the first day of the semester, or shortly after, by clicking the Blackboard or Moodle Login under Western Piedmont online.
WPCC will be utilizing a free email service from Google Apps for Education, so all WPCC students will be issued an email address with the extension @go.wpcc.edu. Please do not create a Google email account because it will go to @gmail.com instead of @go.wpcc.edu.
The first time you log into Google you will be asked to activate your account by typing some weird characters (called captcha). After you type these characters, scroll down and agree to the terms, which should take you to your inbox.
Click on Student Email to access your email account now, or type http://mail.go.wpcc.edu/ in your browser's address bar.
