These classes start and end on specified dates, and they include homework and other scheduled activities throughout the course. The actual course content is well structured and you will have requirements to complete every week.

Online courses include requirements for reading, writing papers, class discussions, solving problems, and all other activities you would expect in any other college class. These are not independent study or “self-paced” courses. Online classes start and end on specified dates and they include homework and activities that are due throughout the course.
Most of your work will be completed in Moodle. Course content is structured and you will have requirements to complete every week. Online classes are not easier than on-campus classes; in fact, many instructors teach the same class both online and face-to-face, and they require students to complete the same work. Often, students report that online classes are more difficult because they require a motivated and well-organized effort to keep up with the work. The most common advice from online students is “Don’t fall behind” since it is so hard to catch up.
