Your Time is Important!

On line distance education is the largest growing segment of higher education today. With the increasingly tight demands on people’s schedules, and the need for further education to advance in the workplace, the ability to take courses that fit into their lifestyle is attracting an unprecedented influx of students to colleges and universities across the country.. More than 6 million students in the US took one or more online courses in 2017 (Online Learning Consortium, May 02, 2017). Are you ready to shape your future with the newest of today’s methods?

How Does Online Education Work?

Using virtually any computer with a current web browser and an internet connection, students and instructors use the Internet to log on to their course. Instructors interact with their class both individually and in groups. Since our online course platform (NEO) is easy to learn, students and instructors are able to concentrate on their work rather than worrying about the technology. And they do this whenever and wherever it works best for them. You can work at home or office at your convenience!

What is an online Class Like?

 Typically, students log on to the NEO platform at the beginning of the week and download current assignments, reading, discussion posts, lectures, and graded assignments from the previous week. They complete the work at their convenience (but within the time schedule set for the class), then turn in their homework, ask questions, and participate in group discussions. It’s like a regular class, you just sit farther apart! None of the classes are real time (except for online “office hours”), leaving you with the freedom to complete assignments, papers, etc. at your own pace.

What about a hybrid class?

As then name implies, hybrid classes are a combination of traditional in-residence classes with an online component, allowing you to have the “best of both worlds” in one course. Classes meet in person at the specified time and place for a majority of the course time, with the instructor and your other classmates. This is then supplemented by in-class work on our online learning platform (NEO), where students participate in additional semi-structured discussions of class topics, complete assignments, download reading materials and other learning resources, and perhaps take exams or quizzes. The online component becomes the repository for the key elements of the course, both learning resources and student-generated materials and projects.

How Does Teaching online Differ from Traditional Methods?

In an online distance education class, the instructor’s role is that of facilitator, rather than lecturer. Through discussions, feedback, media resources and collaboration, the instructor guides the students, emphasizing critical thinking, profound reflection, and creative innovation in the learning process.
