The DSCU Blackboard site has migrated to a new, cloud-based platform. While the look and feel of the new DSCU Blackboard site remains unchanged, it now provides many new features, plus performance and maintenance advantages, to DSCU and the security cooperation student body. Also, be assured that absolutely no content or progress was lost during the migration. The URL for the new DSCU Blackboard is now dscu.blackboard.com.
DSCU will be posting the course offerings for the first quarter of FY21 within the next few days. We will refresh the comments here when that occurs. All classes will be virtual (no in-person/resident classes —at least for the 1st quarter). For planning purposes, until classes are posted and open for registration, dates for the SCO-201 will be 5-30 October. If you plan to take this class and have not been in contact with DSCU West regarding the requirements, please review the course information for SCO-201, to include the Prerequisite and Notes and begin taking the prerequisite courseware.
We will also be offering an assortment of classes to include the initial offerings of new CASE Intermediate classes (CASE-211, CASE-212, and CASE-213) within the first quarter.
Note that for POE-201 and CASE-201, there will not be the two-phases of classes (that previously included POEH/CASEH). Those phases have been combined into a single class incorporating both phases as we begin FY21.
Upcoming NCR Campus Course Offerings:
Exec 901 (19-23 Oct)
SCO 261 (formerly 301, AKA Enterprise Orientation); two iterations: 30 Sep-1 Oct and 2-3 Nov
We will be working the academic schedule for the remaining three quarters of FY21 to facilitate their posting before the end of November.
All of what is being offered as of today is virtual – whether on-line self-paced CBT, more in-depth asynchronous instruction, or synchronous instruction that is now taking place in our Intermediate level courses. If you have any doubts about a course, please contact us. Above all, please read the course information thoroughly to ensure you understand the commitment of time and effort needed to anticipate the rigor of a course. Moving to the virtual environment did not ease the course completion requirements; they are still challenging – to ensure the accomplishment of the course learning objectives. This is important also for supervisors to ensure that they provide the time and environment needed for students to complete many hours of coursework and not to expect the student to be able to accomplish normal duties while still participating in our classes.
