Workload and Attendance

Traditional Online: Students are strongly encouraged to actively engage with course material and/or participate in the virtual classroom 5 out of the 7 days a week to accomplish the course goals and assignments.  In courses where there is a need to practice basic skills or master new concepts more time may be necessary.  The average 3 credit hour course should require 18 – 20 hours of work (in the online classroom and outside coursework) per week.  Students may determine which days and times of the day they attend their course(s).

Real-Time Virtual: Students from various campuses interact with each other and the instructor via computer audio and video tools at scheduled times.  Students may attend class on a Davenport campus, from their own home or from a workstation of their choice that meets accepted technology specifications.  Students are expected to attend every session as scheduled.
