Computer Science Online Courses

Computer Science Online Courses

Oakton Community College offers a variety of classes online. These credit courses can usually be adapted to the student's schedule and availability. The courses taught online require a majority of class time be spent on the web, though most will require additional materials such as textbooks and/or video media. The courses contain a discussion forum through which students can interact via the web with their teacher and classmates as well as a variety of other sources.

Courses in Computer Science that are taught online include:

CSC 155 Computer Science I
CSC 156 Java Computer Science I
CSC 157 Python Computer Science I
CSC 171 C Programming for Engineers
CSC 172 FORTRAN Programming for Engineers
CSC 173 Java Programming for Engineers
CSC 240 C++ Data Structures
CSC 241 Java Data Structures
CSC 255 Objects and Algorithms

Online courses require different skills and learning styles from conventional courses. Students in an online class are responsible for scheduling their own "class time." Motivation and self-discipline are essential for success in an online course. The online courses cover the same material as the on campus sections of the same courses, and the expected student requirements are the same whether the course is taken online or on campus.
