Features of Our Online Courses
In the online courses, the instructor provides materials, lectures, tests, and assignments that can be accessed at any time. Students are given a timeframe – usually a one-week window – during which they need to connect at least once or twice. But overall, students are free to contribute whenever they choose during the timeframe or duration of the course.
All of our online courses do not require students and instructors to be online at the same time. All lectures, discussions, and presentations do not occur at a specific hour, and students do not need to be online at the same time in order to participate. This feature provides a better way to learn. Many students need more time to form their thoughts or to consider all the sides of an issue before offering an opinion.
Features of Our Online Courses:
- Virtual Libraries/Repositories of Documents, Presentations, and Videos: The online course will provide you with instructional materials. You may also be asked to download presentations, slides, and illustrative graphics. In addition, you may have instructional materials that consist of video snippets or short videos. In this case, you’ll often have the option to stream the content rather than having to download an enormous file.
- E-Mail: e-mail is used for all online courses. It's a great tool for asking questions, keeping in touch, and receiving materials, updates, reminders, and assessments. The instructor will use this tool to send daily reminders and updates throughout the entire course.
- Discussion Boards: The discussion board is a foundational item in the online learning structure. Students will participate in discussions facilitated by the instructor. A series of questions are posted in the forums. All students must respond and comment. It's a great way to respond to answer questions and share documents and links. It's also a good place to ask questions and to clear up ambiguities.
- Course Exercises: Each week you will work on an exercise, responding to a series of questions that will ask you to analyze a situation and develop a solution. The exercise has a timeline for submission in order to receive a grade.
- Quizzes and Tests: Each week you will need to complete a short quiz to help you measure your progress in the course. Most of the courses also include a final test.
