Online Learning Environment

You've registered for your online class. Now what?

LERN, our online class affiliate, will send you an email invitation to join the classroom the Wednesday before your course begins.  Add to your Safe Senders List because sometimes these invitations are filtered as spam. 

Here's what you'll find in your online classes:

  1. Online classroom
    In the online classroom, you will
    - listen to audio lectures,
    - view slides,
    - and take an optional quiz to test yourself.
  2. Discussion and Questions
    You will participate in and learn from a robust discussion through written posts with fellow participants and the instructor. Your instructor logs on once a day to answer questions and join the discussion.
  3. Readings
    Many courses have online readings of up to 20 pages a week.
  4. Convenience.
    Participate any time of day or night. The ideal is to go online 2-3 times a week, but you decide.

In addition, you'll likely encounter recommended readings, websites, and videos to further supplement your learning.
