There are a variety of ways we handle labs for online courses. Some courses require you to purchase a lab kit you will use at home. Some courses require you to use a CD that includes lab simulations. There are additional ways labs are handled, BUT you never have to come to campus to complete a lab. For more information, visit http://www.ccd.edu/onlinelearning/. Click on the link in the lower left called "online courses with labs."

CCD Online is managed and taught by CCD staff and faculty. The courses are developed, designed and approved by CCD. CCC Online is a partnership program developed by the Colorado Community Colleges. All of the community colleges (except Colorado Mountain College and Aims Community College) are members of CCC Online and have agreed to transcript the courses offered by CCC Online because CCC Online is NOT a college. If you elect to take a course through CCC Online, you must first be a CCD registered student.

The Student Information System (where you register) is not on the same computer as Desire 2 Learn. The information must get transferred. This happens every evening at midnight beginning two weeks before the start of the semester. The information continues to get transferred up through the last date to add a course.
If you change your PIN number on the screens where you register, this information does not automatically carry over to the computer where the Desire 2 Learn courses reside. This means you must edit your personal information after logging into Desire 2 Learn and change your password/PIN there.
If you need technical help with Desire2Learn, please call the help desk at 888-800-9198 or go to help.cccs.edu. The helpdesk staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
