Taking Online CoursesAre these online courses offered for college credit?
Yes. You can take multiple courses or stagger the starting dates of courses according to your own schedule.
No. You may access our courses from wherever you wish.
The great benefit of being in an online course is that you can have direct, one-to-one communication with your instructor—and, in some of our courses, with your fellow students—at any time, rather than only during class or office hours. If you do take advantage of this new ability, then you should check your e-mail regularly.
Similarly, you are strongly encouraged to post questions and comments on the course discussion boards, if they are made available. This method of informal communication is an important and very rewarding replacement for the atmosphere and camaraderie of a friendly, face-to-face classroom. And just like in a classroom, if everyone else gets to hear a question and its answer, everyone learns from it.
