Proctored Events

Chattahoochee Technical College takes steps to guarantee those enrolled in online courses complete their own work and that the students registered are the ones completing this work (see Distance Learning Student Privacy Procedure). All online courses require secure login to gain entry to the courses. Students are encouraged to never share online user IDs or login passwords with anyone. Chattahoochee Tech instructors may also use additional technologies to verify the identity and/or work of online students. All online courses at Chattahoochee Tech require students to attend at least one proctored event in the presence of the instructor in a traditional classroom or in a monitored, restricted online environment. Proctored sites are often posted with the schedule of classes, and online students are notified of these events the week classes begin. Students who cannot attend scheduled proctored events, or who require additional technology, are responsible for making alternative arrangements, and those must be approved by the instructor before the proctored events.

Okta Authentication and Blackboard

Okta is a single-sign-on application. At Chattahoochee Technical College, students log-in to Okta for single sign on access to college email, Blackboard and other applications. For detailed instructions on how to access and use Okta, please utilize the following PDF: Quick Login Instructions.

Chattahoochee Tech uses Blackboard to deliver all online content. Complete instructions for getting started with Blackboard, including login instructions, appear on Blackboard’s Login page.

Instructors may upload publisher-provided content, such as e-books and access to password-protected Web sites, into their Blackboard courses, and this content usually requires students to have a key or password separate from their Blackboard user names and passwords. Students must get information about this publisher-provided content from their instructors.
