Online Learning

Online Learning uses technology to facilitate learning without the constraints of time or place. Students can access course material, exchange ideas with faculty and other students, and submit course assignments via the Internet. Online courses allow students to earn college credits and prepare for the competitive market, anytime and anywhere. Students are able to pursue their degrees without being confined to traditional class schedules or to a campus. Online learning uses a schedule similar to the on-campus schedule, but offers the flexibility of learning at your own pace, within course deadlines.
