Online courses are taught using the Los Rios e-Learning system, also commonly known as Desire2Learn (or D2L). An in-person course orientation is usually required at the beginning of the semester (some faculty provide online orientations; see the SCC course schedule for details) and some courses require in-person exams. Online courses are taught by the same highly qualified Sacramento City College faculty who teach on-campus courses. Online coursework can be completed at the time of day most convenient for the student, with the instructor requiring regular deadlines for participation and assignments. SCC instructors strive to maintain regular effective contact with each student throughout the term of an online course.
