Frequently Asked Questions
How is online learning different
from traditional classroom learning?
Instead of the traditional lecture
format used in face-to-face format courses, online courses are presented
electronically. You will participate in written discussions, real-time chats,
multimedia presentations, and group assignments. Most of the work in online
courses is done at your own pace each week which allows you to complete the
assignments independently within the given timeframe.
How are classes taught online?
Each course will run for a specific number of weeks, based on the number of credits for the course. Coursework to be completed is posted within a service called Canvas. Take a peek at the system through our guide, “Getting Started as a Student.”
What are the advantages of an online
Flexibility is the main advantage of
the online program, however, another advantage is academic parity. Students are
judged on the quality of their academic work, not on their social skills,
aggressiveness in discussions, or personal charisma.
Can I take these classes if I live outside of Wisconsin?

programs, you will need consistent access to a desktop/laptop device with internet

Internet, using word processing packages, and sending and receiving emails, you
will develop more advanced skills throughout the program.

hours per week on online courses.
