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 areas of compressed video and online/hybrid course offerings and 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.
