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 program?

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.
