Because you will be learning at your own location and during the times that you prefer, e-mail will probably be your primary means of communicating with instructors and other students. In addition, most courses will ask that students engage regularly in online discussions and debates. Online students take an active role in their education.
A greater degree of flexibility also means that you'll need to be disciplined in your approach to your studies-it will be up to you to make sure you log on to your course and meet your own deadlines.
We've designed an online environment which allows our faculty members to interact with students online. Course content varies, and usually includes online lectures, videos, interactive animations, discussion boards and more.
