Student Orientation

Welcome to the world of competency-based education!
Competency-based learning allows us to keep learning constant and let time vary. Measuring learning rather than time is an important characteristic of this model. You may progress by demonstrating competence, which means you have demonstrated that you have mastered the knowledge and skills required for a particular course.

The courses are delivered in Competency Modules via Blackboard: a learning management 
system used by the college.  Only admitted ACC students get ID's allowing them access to Blackboard; we are presenting these orientation materials here for your convenience.
