Bringing Education to You


Q: How are courses delivered?

Web-Based Courses
Generally most instructors use a learning management system (LMS) called Blackboard to post a syllabus, materials, assignments, and communication from instructors. Some instructors use their own sites and then students are contacted by email.
Face-To-Face Courses
Run the same as other on-campus face-to-face courses, but often have evening start times or may be offered at off-campus locations.
