Distance Learning

Our Mission

The Distance Learning Center will provide a quality learning experience that supports unique educational needs of distance learners.

Welcome to Distance Learning!
You’ve taken your first step toward completing your educational goals with your needs in mind.
GOCC collaborates and supports Michigan Colleges Online (MCO) to deliver education to you via the Internet.

What is the MCO?
The Michigan College’s Online, with support from the Michigan Virtual University, has created a virtual learning collaborative among Michigan’s community college students to take courses from other member colleges while still receiving support services and maintaining their academic record at their designated home college.

We are using Canvas as our learning platform for Distance Learning classes. Below is the information on how to access the system. Since Canvas is linked to your WebAdvisor account, please make sure you have access to WebAdvisor prior to attempting to sign into Canvas.

Canvas Login Screen

Logging Into Canvas Is Easy!

  • Go to Canvas (the link is also on the glenoaks.edu homepage)
  • Username: Your first initial, last name, and last three digits of your GOCC student ID number (this is the same as your WebAdvisor username and is commonly referred to as your Viking ID)
  • Password: Your password is the same password you use to access your WebAdvisor or email account

Free, Live, Online Tutoring

All Distance Learning students (currently enrolled in this semester’s classes) will have access to a link called “NetTutor ” on their Canvas homepage. This link will provide you with helpful, online academic resources and live access to Glen Oaks’ free tutoring services.

Distance Learning Orientation

There is a Distance Learning orientation available through Canvas, if you would like to review it. It will provide you with information and show you how to move around in Canvas.
