Online Teaching and Learning

The online program and course objectives are identical to those for conventional classroom teaching; however, instructional methods that fit the requirements of online education are employed within the courses.  Both synchronous (live, real-time) and asynchronous (on your own, not live) formats are used.  Most of the course work is asynchronous but live sessions are scheduled in selected online courses for purposes of course orientations, presentation of content experts, faculty office hours, topic discussion and presentations.  There are typically alternative assignments to the live sessions available as necessary.  The asynchronous interactions include discussion board posts, assignments, in-course e-mail and phone communication.
