SGTC expands online course offerings for fall semester
South Georgia Technical College has increased the number of online course offerings for its upcoming fall semester in order to better serve the needs of its student population, announced SGTC President Dr. John Watford recently. “First and foremost, we’re about our students at SGTC,” said President Watford. “We hope to continuously increase the number of online course offerings in order to be more accessible to our students and accommodate the busy lives they lead.” In addition to many core online credit offerings, SGTC will offer online courses in the following programs: Accounting, Business Administrative Technology, Computer Information Systems, Early Childhood Care and Education, Marketing Management, Recreation and Leisure Management, Criminal Justice Technology, and Electrical Systems Technology. Online learning at South Georgia Tech is now hosted on the Blackboard Learner Management System. SGTC faculty who teach online courses recently received Blackboard training from Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) Georgia Virtual Technical Connection (GVTC) Coordinator, Annelise Berger, which prepared them to teach fully online, hybrid, and web-enhanced courses.
