Learn About Online Courses

What are online courses?

Online courses offer the same educational information that you would get in a traditional institution but they are held in virtual classrooms instead of physical classrooms. Everything else will be similar to campus colleges. You will still have professors, books, assignments, exams, and grades, but also more flexibility as you would learn over the Internet from the location of your choice.

How do they work?

Each online course is going to vary slightly. In standard courses, every class will have its own website where the professor will post reading assignments and study questions for the upcoming week. In turn it is the student’s responsibility to complete the reading and submit the questions at their own convenience, but by the given deadline. The process for the final exam also varies but will usually be a written essay asking you to demonstrate your overall learning of the class.
