Distance Education

Welcome to the Distance Education Department

Our Mission Statement:
The Northern New Mexico College Distance Education department supports both students and faculty in the use of educational technologies and emerging content delivery methods. Our primary method for supporting a culture of quality student centered learning is through the delivery of effective, timely, technological support to all students and faculty.

Northern New Mexico College uses the Blackboard Learn platform (Bb) for all fully online courses. Some instructors enhance their traditional courses with materials and communication resources in their Bb course sites.

While Bb is not difficult to use, students who have never used this technology should click here to sign up for an orientation.
