Getting to class on time is never a problem. All courses are asynchronous, which means you can log on at your convenience, day or night, to participate. Students from across the country and around the world communicate with each other and the instructor, posting comments and questions in designated discussion areas.
When you are ready to go to class, simply log on to the site, visit the various student areas, post questions/comments to the ongoing discussions, read the lesson materials or submit your assignment to the instructor.
Students should allow 2-5 hours per week to read materials, complete assignments (if applicable to the course) and interact with the instructor.
You will never need to be online at a specific day or time; instead enjoy the flexibility of learning at your convenience. There are, however, some built-in time restrictions and deadlines to be aware of. It's a good idea to get to the lecture and assignments as early as possible in each lesson to see what's in store. Once you have an idea of what kind of assignment or project you'll be preparing, you can budget your course time as appropriate. If you have difficulties keeping up with the lessons, keep in mind that you will have access to the lesson materials for 2 weeks after the end date of your course.
