The education that makes you Unique
In some ways, online education differs from classroom learning – but at its core, much of it is the same. You will read from textbooks, complete assignments, and even take exams. The idea of imparting the right set of education remains the same in online and offline learning. However, online learning differs from the concept of traditional classroom learning in many aspects.
Depending on the course you have chosen for online education, you may need to listen to or read the lectures every day or maybe once or twice in a week. Similar to other classes, you will also be provided with some notes etc. so that they can easily complete given assignments. There are some assignments which are required to be completed online during the class itself.
How does Online Learning Work
- Students receive better quality education from accredited schools and colleges.
- Most of the classes are delivered asynchronously. Based on your individual schedules, your instructor and peers will work together on the course activities at different times since it facilitates overall flexibility.
- At times, you will be required to meet the deadlines during every week set by the online instructors.
- Learning is convenient and requires self-discipline and the organization at the same time.
- Discussions with peers and instructors take place when convenient via Desire2Learn discussion boards, private messages, and emails to ease the overall communication process. These modes of communication also provide you with enough time to think through responses to the questions and the posted comments etc.
- Students receive full UW System student support services and resources, including academic advising, tutoring, and financial aid assistance.
- Successful usually students spend around four hours every week per credit in full semester classes.
As a successful online student, you will be requested to take the following steps during online courses:
- Logon to your class regularly.
- You may need to log in multiple times over a week depending on the instructor and the course demand.
- Work online by reading lecture notes, communicating with your professor, participating in group discussions, checking assignment due dates, submitting coursework and taking quizzes or exams,
- Work offline by reading supplemental material & article assignments, textbook, solving computational problems, doing research, studying for quizzes or exams, and composing written assignments.
- Participate in the class at a time that best suits you, while ensuring your coursework is completed within the given deadlines. Any kind of delay in covering the assignments may result in missing some important courses etc. So, always be attentive and participate actively in all online classes.
- Spend as much time for completing coursework as you would have in a traditional classroom course.
- 3-4 hours per week per credit on each fall or spring semester course and 5-8 hours per week per credit on each summer course.
