Jackson State online courses are developed and taught by JSCC instructors. Jackson State Community College uses eLearn (D2L) to deliver our online courses. You will use your JSCC network login to access the system.
RODP – Regents Online Degree Programs allow students to earn a degree entirely online. RODP courses may also be used to satisfy some classes required in JSCC degree programs. To see if your program allows you to take RODP courses, check with your advisor or the records office.
RODP courses use the same type of system as JSCC online courses, but the course page will be blue. You will use a special username to access the RODP system. You will find information about how to create your RODP login on the right side of their access page https://elearn.rodp.org/.
RODP courses are different from JSCC online courses because they are developed and taught by instructors located at any of the colleges or universities within the Tennessee Board of Regents System. When you begin an RODP program or register for an RODP class, you choose a home school. You register for your classes, pay and receive your credits from your home school. There is an additional fee for RODP courses.
