Distance Learning can provide an excellent way to achieve your educational goals, especially if you need a more flexible schedule or are unable to come to campus. But you should be aware that:

  • Online courses require as much time and commitment as traditional classroom-based
  • Most of your communication with your instructor and with other students will be in writing (in the form of email, discussion forums, chat rooms, blogs, wikis, or other online communication methods through Moodle or Canvas).

Getting Started

All classes use an online learning management system (LMS) called Canvas.
