How are online courses different from on-campus courses?

Students admitted to University System of Georgia’s online programs learn the same material and benefit from the same rigorous and high-quality learning experiences as campus-based students and they enjoy frequent interactions with the instructor and other classmates. In fact, instead of being limited to asking questions during class or office hours, students have direct access to instructors via email or message boards. Instructors receive the necessary online course skills and training to ensure that they can effectively teach online. These instructors incorporate the best practices of traditional teaching, just in a virtual classroom setting.

Online courses often require at least as much, if not more, time and commitment than traditional courses. With the increased freedom and flexibility comes responsibility. Without the structure of regular class meetings, it will be up to you to stay motivated, pace yourself, and keep up with assignments.
