D2L Brightspace

D2L Brightspace is MTC's online learning platform. It's used mostly for academic students, although some training classes use D2L Brightspace as well. Students can access D2L Brightspace and the D2L Brightspace Helpdisk via MyMTC.

Preregistration Information

Every online and hybrid course at Midlands Technical College has associated with it a preregistration page which contains vital pieces of information about the class such as on-campus/off-campus requirements and possible course requirements prior to the start of the semester.

There are many benefits to taking online and hybrid courses, such as needing to come to campus less frequently and being able to complete much of the work during the nights and weekends. However, keep in mind that online and hybrid courses demand that you be self-motivated and proactive. Also, coming to campus less frequently does not mean the workload is less than a face-to-face course, and attendance is still taken much like traditional face-to-face courses.

You must have access to reliable internet service to take online or hybrid courses. It is also imperative that you have basic computer skills, such as: navigating the internet, sending emails, using D2L Brightspace, and using common computer software such as Microsoft Word.

Unsure if taking an online course is for you? Try taking our Student Readiness for Online Courses (SROC).

Four days before the semester begins, be sure to log into D2L Brightspace to access your course syllabi, assignments, and all other information related to the course. Unless otherwise noted, it is very important to have the textbook and all required class materials by the first day of class.

To find the class preregistration pages, please search for your class here.

If you have any questions regarding your class, contact your instructor immediately.

If you are an otherwise qualified student with a documented disability, please contact Counseling and Career Services as soon as possible prior to the first day of class to request accommodations. 

Student Complaints

In compliance with U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) rules, an institution offering distance education must provide enrolled and prospective students with contact information for filing complaints with its accrediting agency and with the appropriate state agency for handling complaints in the student's state. Please visit the Student Complaints page for information about the student grievance process.

Am I a Training or an Academic student?

Academic students are taking courses for credit toward a degree, certificate, or diploma. Academic students must apply to and enroll at the college.

Training students—sometimes called Continuing Education students—can take individual courses or earn certificates and certifications. They can register directly for courses online. Training courses don't earn college credit or transfer to other institutions.
