Online Students

This guide for online and distance-learning students is specifically designed for students who are enrolled in one or more online classes at BPCC. It directs students to all of the resources the learning commons has to support students in their studies and teaches them how to most effectively use those resources. This guide contains a module on effective research strategies.
