Online Success Interventions

Overview

As a part of A-B Tech's Student Online Success program, students who want to take classes 100 percent online must take at least one of the following "interventions":

  • CTS 060 ("Essential Computer Usage") or the computer course required for your program
  • Fast Track to Online Learning
  • Moodle Online Orientation

Depending on where an interested student is placed by the SmarterMeasure assessment, he or she may encounter all necessary training at one time.  For example, both Fast Track to Online Learning & Moodle Online Orientation are included in CTS 060. Students do not have to follow any of the interventions that are prescribed based on SmarterMeasure scores if they do not wish to take online classes. 

CTS 060 or the computer course required for your program
