Online instruction has grown in strength and popularity. One of the main reasons for this could be convenience. Instruction for online courses takes place in a virtual environment which students can access at the time and location of their choice. Lessons could take the form of audio/video lectures, reading assignments, eBook activities, discussions and much more. Students are responsible for having access to the appropriate technology to meet the demands of their course.
Classroom attendance is not required for online courses. Instructors may, however, conduct exams, office hours and other meetings at specific times and locations. Be sure that you are aware of your instructor’s policies with regard to deadlines and meeting requirements.
