[Histonet] Online biochem/organic chem

Hope someone can help me (and a potential student) out with pointing me in
the direction of a community college that has an on-line distance program
for Intro to Organic and Biochemistry. This is a 1 semester course found at
the community colleges around here.

In the fall, we interviewed and accepted a student into our hospital based
program, but she had to take some chemistry courses at a community college
before our program started in May 2008 (had the rest of the biology/med
term/math courses with the associate degree, but was missing our chemistry
requirements, and maybe a physics class). Anyway, the student has taken the
other classes in the fall, and was to take the intro organic/biochem class
this winter. 12 hours into registration, and the class is full! She can't
get in - it's full with a long waiting list. The other community college in
the area only offers it the class during the day, when she works. She's
supposed to start my HT program in May!

I don't need her to take the lab work - the other bio and chem classes have
had the students using flasks, beakers, pipets, etc. I need the student to
know the theory and terminology organic chemistry (benzene, alcohol,
aldehydes, etc.) and biochemistry (proteins, lipids, DNA, etc.).

I'm willing to accept completion of an online class bio/organic chem class,
but I can't find any via Google. Can someone get me started? Thanks from
both of us.
