Expectations

Online courses have a few advantages when compared to classroom-based courses. However, online classes are as rigorous and time consuming as their in-class counterpart. There are a few things to consider before you enroll in an online class:

Online classes take as much time as on-campus classes

Plan to spend as much time working on assignments as you would with a traditional class. For a 3 unit class, it is estimated that a student needs to devote approximately 9 hours a week.

You may need textbooks for your online class

Instructors generally require their students to use textbooks for their distance education class.

Be an active learner

Students will have to log in to their class on Canvas multiple times per week to contribute to class discussions, turn in assignments, or contact your professor.
