DirectCourse for Learners

Once registered, DirectCourse learners will be given a Login Name and Password. The Login Name is the learner’s first initial, last name, and MMDD of the date of birth. Learners will be given a temporary password and will be prompted to change their password upon the first login.

Learners can log into DirectCourse at any time and complete lessons at their own pace and on their own time. While many of the lessons and programs have a specific due date, learners can complete coursework on their own schedule. When a learner logs in, he will see his current assignments and any announcements. He will also be able to view his transcript to see progress on each lesson, due dates, completed lessons, and additional information.

Staff of Self-Directed

If you are a staff member of an individual who self-directs through BHDDH services and you are interested in becoming a learner on DirectCourse, please contact Lindsay Scarpaci to set up an account.
