Like on-site courses, online courses are led by faculty and taken by students during an established academic term. However, the primary means of communication is through an online learning platform, that provides many ways of sharing information, asking questions, and collaborating on projects through digital means. Most courses include opportunities to meet online in real time with your class for live video discussions through your computer. Online courses are just as demanding as on-site courses. The reading materials, projects, assignments, and discourse are equivalent to on-site courses.

Most of our online courses are asynchronous and do not have specific meeting times. While courses have specific start dates, end dates, and assignments, there are no specific class meeting times. This asynchronous format allows students the flexibility to study on the schedule that fits their lives.

On a weekly basis, you will be expected to actively participate in class discussions; complete homework assignments and readings; and take part in team activities. To add richness to the learning experience, many course instructors provide you with opportunities to meet online, live via web conference, for group project meetings and instructor office hours.
