The courses are web-based, using a learning management system called Canvas. Once you have enrolled, you will be given access to the full course. The courses will be asynchronous, which means that you can log on any time of day or night, whenever it is convenient to you. You will still be required to complete the course within the semester of enrollment in order to obtain credit for the course.
Lectures will be provided by video streaming. Laboratory sessions will be provided in different manners depending upon the nature of the material. Demonstrations and field visits will be recorded so you can watch on your computer. Simulations may be used. Where hands-on experience is required, we may require a short visit to campus or to another location at a time suitable to all students just to carry out the laboratory portion of the course. This only applies to two courses. The majority of courses are fully online.
