Types of Classes and Formats


In Internet courses, all activities are done online; there are no classroom meetings. Online courses are designed for motivated, self-disciplined, technology-literate students. Communication will be through email, and reliable Web access is needed. Exams may be delivered online, or may require on-site attendance. Due to the changing nature of technology training, always check with an academic advisor for the most current requirements for your program of study. This format does not reduce the amount of student work or effort required to succeed in the course. Online classes are delivered through Learning Management Systems such as CANVAS. *Please note that all Online classes start on a Monday.
