OCC is one of the first community colleges in the Mid-Atlantic to develop and place most science offerings completely online. With both content and laboratory directed via distance learning, OCC has pioneered an innovative online delivery mode that uses Blackboard-CE6 and a home-delivered, safe, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly laboratory kit from Hands-On Science. Course offerings in biology, chemistry, physics, anatomy, and physiology have attracted students from across the country. This initiative helped eliminate the need to for another science laboratory building while providing the means for rapid expansion of the science program.
