This is not your father's college course.
In your online
class, you may not meet face-to-face except for one or two times (in
many courses) throughout the semester. You will spend a lot of time on the computer because
this is where you will find many of your readings and assignments. You
will also use the computer to interact with your classmates and
instructor on the course discussion board. You will be responsible for
doing your readings - the instructor will guide you but will not be
standing up in front of a classroom delivering lectures.
