As an Online student, you connect to the Internet using your computer and a Web browser. At your course address, you’ll find all the information you need to participate in a lively and interactive learning experience. Your “virtual classroom” will include an online syllabus, complete instructions, course requirements and objectives, bibliographies, lectures, readings, an online discussion center, and support for both the academic and technical questions. In most cases, you will have a timeframe of several days to access reading materials and participate in discussions. Enjoy this flexibility yet be prepared to discover the unique capability of the Web to facilitate dynamic discussions in both large and small groups.
