Things You Need to Know

  1. Your BHCC email is the official way you receive information from faculty and staff members.  Please read your emails at least once a day so you are up-to-date.
  2. Courses are mostly taught using one of the formats listed below.  You do not have to come to campus for your courses unless you are in some health profession courses, science labs or culinary arts classes. You will need a computer, tablet or mobile phone plus internet access to take your courses.
  3. MOODLE: Moodle is the online learning management system where most of your faculty members for courses post the requirements, assignments, and materials plus faculty contact information for each course. (For example, if you are taking 4 courses you will have 4 Moodle locations.  This is the link that takes you to a sign-in page to enter Moodle: https://online.bhcc.edu/  Learn How to Use Moodle.
  4. WEBEX is the official online platform used by most faculty members teaching your courses.  It is a video-conferencing platform, similar to Zoom. Students will meet via video, in “real-time” with their professors and classmates.  Faculty may also use other videoconferencing platforms, such as Zoom and/or Google Meet. Here’s how you can get started with WebEx, Zoom, and/or Google Meet:
    1. Your professor will send you a Website link to the platform that they are using to teach the course (e.g. WebEx, Zoom, or Google).
    2. You just copy and paste the class Webex, Zoom or Google Meet link into your computer browser when connected to the internet.
    3. If you are using a computer, for some platforms, you may need to download an app to your Web browser, so that you can connect to the platform.
    4. If you are using your mobile phone, there are also phone apps you can download for access to WEBEX, Zoom, and Google Meet.  Internet access is required to use each phone app. The Internet may be accessed via WIFI or your phone’s data plan (check to ensure that you have unlimited data so you do not rack up additional charges.)

      TIP: You can enter the appropriate link for each class in your calendar on the dates and times of each class.  Then you can just click on the website link from your phone or computer calendar to enter the class when connected to the internet.
