South Georgia Technical College offers online courses through the Georgia Virtual Technical Connection - an organization made up of the 34 technical colleges in Georgia who work together to offer courses over the Internet. Online courses allow students to learn almost anywhere and at any time. All that the student needs are Internet access and an email account.
Students enrolled in a GVTC class get the same high quality instruction and course content that technical colleges in Georgia provide to traditional students.
A successful online student must be able to complete assignments with little or no supervision. Self-discipline is a must. Online classes are not "independent study" classes. They require active participation in the class, submitting assignments on time, and taking exams in accordance with a pre-determined calendar.

This web-based tool assesses your likelihood for succeeding in an online learning program. READI indicates the degree to which you possess attributes that contribute to success in online learning, including:
Time management skills
Availability of time
Ability to use a laptop, printer, software and the Internet
READI uses a sequence of activities to measure the degree to which you possess the traits needed for success in studying at a distance and provides immediate score and diagnostic interpretation of results to you.
READI includes five major assessment components that measure:
Preferred learning styles
Typing speed and accuracy
Benefits To You
