How do these online courses work?

These online courses are easy to access and participate in. After you register, you'll receive login information via email for your class website.

Login on the first day of class, and here's what you can expect:

You Choose the Time

You can participate any time of day or evening. The online classroom is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There are no live real-time requirements or meetings. You decide when you can participate.

For the best learning, we recommend that you login to the course on 2-3 different days of the week.

What You'll Do

For each unit, you will:

  • Access the online readings
  • Listen to the audio presentation for the Unit and view the slides
  • Take a self-quiz to see how much you have learned
  • Engage in written online discussion with your instructor and other participants

The content (readings, audio lectures, slides) and self quizzes are accessible for the entire course, so you can work ahead, or go back and review again, at your convenience.

Discussion Tips

The Discussion for each Unit lasts one week. All comments are made in writing and can be made at any time of the day or night.

Your instructor will login to the Discussion area at least once a day and answer questions, make comments and respond to comments by you and the other participants.

We encourage you to make 2-3 comments each day to maximize your learning and enjoyment of the course.
