Getting Started in Online, Hybrid, Blended, Hyflex Courses at NCCC

Summer 2022

Thank you for choosing to study with NCCC. Our records indicate you have enrolled in an online, hybrid, blended, or hyflex course for the upcoming semester. The following is a list of things you can do to prepare yourself for success this semester.

You will need to log on the first day of class and be prepared to spend a good amount of time completing your work during the term. The Summer semester begins on May 23, 2022, however certain module courses begin at different times during the term. You should check your course schedule on Banner Web.

You will have access to your course(s) in Brightspace starting on Thursday, May 19th, 2022. If the course doesn’t start on January 18, 2022, you will have access to your course five days prior to the start date as a note on your course schedule in Banner Web.

Learn more about the instructional methods for online, hybrid, blended, and hyflex.

Step 1: Check your course schedule on Banner Web for course start dates. You will have access to your courses in Brightspace 5 days before the course start date for winter, spring, summer, and fall terms. If you’ve registered for a course after the start date, you will have access within 24 hours.

Step 2: Log into Brightspace using your T-Wolves username/password (need help with username/password? Call NCCC OIT at 716-210-2505). Students will log into  Brightspace through the NCCC website —> MyNCCC—> click on  Brightspace. Log into Brightspace on or before the course start date to make sure you have access to your course. If you still need assistance getting access to your course, email us at onlinelearning@niagaracc.suny.edu, or call 716-614-6488.

Step 3: Log in to your course(s) – View the course schedule, syllabus, and announcement from the professor. Your professor will have a “Welcome-Start Here!” to guide you on how to start the course and any required course materials. If the course is blended the course announcement should have the information you need to log in to Zoom for your 1st class, so block out the days and times for the live zoom class as per the course schedule. If the course is hyflex you can choose your preference and change the mode on how you attend from one class meeting to the next as needed. The days/times listed in Banner Web are the times you can choose to attend the class on campus/virtual, check the course announcement or syllabus on Thursday, May 19th, 2022 for further instructions.
