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.
TN eCampus – allows students to earn a degree entirely online. TN eCampus courses may also be used to satisfy some classes required in JSCC degree programs. To see if your program allows you to take TN eCampus courses, check with your advisor or the records office.
TN eCampus courses and JSCC courses use the same learning management system platform (D2L/Brightspace) which means you don't have to learn how to navigate a new system. However, you will log in to the TN eCampus course site with a username and password that is different from the login you use to access your JSCC courses.
TN eCampus courses are different from JSCC online courses because they are developed and taught by instructors located at colleges and universities within the Tennessee Board of Regents System. New students choose a "home campus" from among the 6 universities awarding Bachelor's and Master's degrees, the 13 community colleges providing Associate degrees, and the 27 colleges of applied technology offering technical certificates and diplomas. Students apply for admission, register for courses, and are awarded degrees, diplomas, or certificates from the home campus.
If you are a current JSCC student, registration for TN eCampus courses occurs through JSCC's online registration system. There is an additional fee for TN eCampus courses.
