Online Course Information

What It Is

An online course is one where the course is entirely asynchronous, or basically there is no set time to meet. All lecture, activities, and assignments are completed online. Then there is the typical homework and studying as well.

What To Expect

Your online class will most likely be inside Canvas, although it may be in WAMAP or on other tools such as textbook companies' websites.

Online Work

 The online work will include a variety of different things. Here are some of the main ones:

  • Lecture videos
  • Discussion boards
  • Reading or writing activities
  • Video activities
  • Virtual field trips or web quests
  • Interactives from other websites or the textbook

All types of classes should be equal in rigor and time commitment.
