Individualized Instruction

What is Individualized Instruction?

Individualized instruction is designed to give you the flexibility of self-paced learning environment at a time that is convenient for you. You decide the day, time, and location you wish to work on your course work. You can complete your assignments at home or in one of our labs where we can assist you. Each course has a start date and must be completed by the end of the semester. You will be provided with up-to-date training in the latest MS Office and computer software technology.

How to begin

It begins with orientation. Orientation for your class will begin on the first day of the semester. Please bring a copy of your course(s) schedule and report to one of the following labs; Battle Creek or Coldwater. For more information at Coldwater, contact Dennis Easler for orientation hours. For the Battle Creek lab, click here. Review student orientation in the following video.

Important Notice – See OIT Lab Locations for information pertaining to the OIT (Open Entry) services being suspended at the center locations Spring 2016.

Due to declining enrollments we have suspended OIT (Open Entry) services at the Fehsenfeld and Eastern Academic Centers starting Spring 2016.  OIT (Open Entry) services will be suspended at the Grahl Center at the end of Spring 2016.  Starting in the Summer 2016 semester OIT (Open Entry) services will only be offered at the main Battle Creek campus in Ohm building, room 106.

The OIT program, also known as Individualized Instruction, will continue to offer student support at the centers in a couple of ways. If a student needs to take a test, you can go to the office, show your student ID, and take the test in the testing room. The centers are set up with the passwords and/or other materials needed for testing. However, students enrolled in Keyboarding I (OIT 109) will still have their Check-Ups at the main campus.

For additional help, students will also be able to Skype an instructor or lab technician from the centers. This will allow the student from having to drive to the main campus. For more information on this process, please contact your instructor or call the main campus at (269) 565-2049.
