The lectures are short, focused, and to the point. Students can review the lectures at their convenience. There are no set class hours. The course is available to you 24/7 while class is in session.
Students will participate in problem solving sessions, discussions and other interactive activities within the course by utilizing our Discussion Boards.
The bulletin board is demonstrated by showing an actual discussion in one of our courses. Student names have been removed for privacy purposes.
Quizzes can contain multiple choice, matching, and other types of questions. The quizzes typically contain 5 to 10 questions and students are allowed to take the quizzes twice in most of the paced classes. The highest score is then entered in the student grade sheet.
Your grade sheet is always available to you. Quizzes are graded by the computer and posted to your grade sheet immediately. Discussions, homework and other assignments are graded by the instructor once per week and grades posted.
Students will know when their grades are posted and they will be notified by email of any notes or comments the instructor has added to their grade sheet.
