Online

Courses offered online can be taken from anywhere in the world with a reliable internet connection.

WWW/Plus Meeting:  Course work and content is online. There is also a meeting that takes place online in a virtual classroom at the time specified. All students are expected to be logged in and present for this meeting.

Arranged Time World Wide Web:  There are deadlines for course work, yet accessing the course is arranged at a time that is convenient for you. Please pay close attention to the course syllabus and any communication from the instructor. Deadlines and course work sometimes change throughout the course of the semester.

Audio/Video connections—The digital device you are using to access the course must be able to make audio and video connections. Online instructors use both methods to convey content to students.
