In fulfillment of its mission of instruction and service, Bossier Parish Community College is committed to the implementation of an electronic education program. The compressed video classrooms in D210 and D219 are capable of responding quickly to community needs while promoting interest in lifelong education.

In an effort to provide a variety of electronically-based instruction/training opportunities, BPCC has established electronic learning initiatives in the area of compressed video and online instruction. These capabilities include the following:

  • College-level courses for BPCC students at extension sites.
  • College-level course work for advanced students at area high schools.
  • Academic course work for students at other institutions of higher learning.
  • Continuing professional education opportunities for business and industry personnel.
  • Personal enrichment courses for residents of area communities at convenient remote sites.
  • Workshops and conferences for employees of area community service agencies.
  • Professional development activities for faculty, staff, and administration.

BPCC is one of eighteen institutions of higher learning in the state of Louisiana participating in the Southern Regional Education Board's "Electronic Campus." The Electronic Campus provides students with basic information about the availability of courses, certificate, and degree programs - - including subjects, levels, requirements, and costs at institutions of higher learning across the 16 SREB states. Students can learn more about the Southern Regional Education Board or the Electronic Campus by visiting the SREB website at www.sreb.org.

Those who use BPCC's electronic learning opportunities--whether it's by compressed video or Internet--will find the following advantages: flexibility in location for delivery of educational and training information, availability of a wider range of courses than previously offered, and uniqueness of teaching resources at remote sites.

Respiratory Therapy is one program offered via compressed video, as well as numerous online courses. BPCC offers three associate degrees in Computer Information Systems, General Studies, and Criminal Justice totally online.
