Online Courses
All communications, assignments, tests, etc. take place on the
Internet using a course management system called Blackboard,
at a time and place that is convenient for you. You DO NOT
have to attend “class” at a specific time on campus. You DO
need to have strong time management and organizational skills.
Online classes are not easier—just more convenient.

Online/Campus Hybrid Courses
These classes can have any number of formats. But, they are all
taught partially in a campus classroom at a required time and
partially online using Blackboard. You may be required to meet
on campus as much as once a week or as little as three times a
semester. This will vary with each course, so be sure to check
the schedule carefully and verify this with your professor on the
first day of class when taking a hybrid course.
     Hybrid courses allow you the flexibility of working in an
online environment while still meeting with your instructor
and classmates in a classroom. You continue to have the support
that you receive in a classroom environment, but you do not
have to spend as much time on campus. For those of you who
are working or have family obligations, or perhaps both, this
form of class structure offers you the flexibility you need to go
to school while meeting those obligations.
