What to Expect from an Online Course

Online courses are offered through distance learning and are conducted entirely on-line. Material will be available via CANVAS and the internet and can be accessed when convenient to the student. The instructor will be available on-line, via phone and/or in person during scheduled office hours.

  • Online courses require the same amount of time and effort as face-to-face courses.
  • You will need to have basic computer skills: be able to send and receive email, install software, and use web browsers and word processing software.
  • Your online class may or may not have set class "meeting" times. Some classes will allow you to work entirely at your own schedule. However, all classes will have a set ending date, as well as deadlines along the way that you will need to meet.
  • You should be comfortable with trying to solve technical problems on your own, and being open to learning new software. Conversely, you should also be comfortable asking for help if needed!
  • Most communication in online classes will be written. You should be comfortable analyzing and discussing ideas in written college-level English.
  • Each class will have slightly different requirements. For any questions, please contact your professor.
