Online Course

It is possible to complete the entire Professional Bookkeeper program through online courses. Access to the internet and an internet-enabled device is required to participate. Online courses will use Brightspace, Langara's online course management system. Some courses may also use Zoom, a free video conferencing software, to conduct live virtual class sessions. Students should ensure they have their student account information and access to Brightspace prior to the beginning of the course.

There are two types of online course in the program:  

  • Synchronous – Online classes will be held live on Zoom at scheduled times. Attendance is required. Additional course information will be provided through Brightspace or other online platforms.
  • Asynchronous – There are no scheduled online classes. Coursework will be done at your own pace. Homework and assignments may still have weekly deadlines. Course information will be provided through Brightspace or other online platforms. Exams may be scheduled at set times. 

Note: Final exams are always scheduled to be written in-person at Langara main campus at set date and time, regardless of delivery method. For students who reside outside of Metro Vancouver, exam proctor can be used instead of traveling to Langara. Please see the Proctored Exam tab for more information. There is also no option to write the exam online unless specifically instructed by the course instructor.
