Distance Education - TalonNet Online Orientation

Welcome to Online Orientation at Cerritos College

Welcome to the Distance Education program at Cerritos College. These online courses offer the same quality of instruction and content as our on-campus courses.

If you are taking an online course for the first time, it is recommended that you first take EDT050-Preparation for Online Learning, a 1-unit course offered in a 9-week format.  In this course, you will be guided through some of the basic things you should be familiar with to be successful in an online course while you use the CMS (Course Management System; aka Learning Management System or LMS). 

Remember that in an online course, you will be challenged to pace yourselves accordingly since you will not be in the traditional classroom environment. There are a few things that you need to know in order to be successful in the online environment. So let’s get started!

You must complete an online orientation quiz in order to participate in online courses.  A certificate of completion will be E-mailed to your instructor upon completion and you will receive the certificate at the end of the quiz. Please Take the quiz!
