Registration for summer school opens May 1

Summer School runs July 2-July 31, 2018 (Diploma exams start August 1) 

Figuring out time required to complete a summer course? Summer School will require students to spend as much time learning in the compressed four week period as they would spend in the classroom during the semester. the general rule of thumb is a 5 credit course requires 125 hours. Students have one month to complete the course. They should plan to be working on the course 5 hours a day if they plan to work weekdays and less if they pan to work weekdays and weekends.  See our time calculator and tables to calculate how much time you need to commit, depending if it is a 1,3, or 5 credit courses.

Getting Online Orientation: Please note that the Getting Online course is required for all students who have not completed this 3 credit online orientation. This prepares the students for learning how to be successful online and is a required prerequisite for all online courses. Our data shows us that students successfully complete after 14-16 log ins who spend an hour or more with each log in. If students log in every day and work for an hour they can complete this course in two weeks. (Students who take longer, interestingly enough still log in between 14-16 times but spread their completion time over a longer period of time). This course must be completed by July 3, 2018. You can log into for help and live instruction 

No courses will be added to a student registration after July 3 for summer completion.

When working toward meeting learning outcomes, logistics play an important role. Once again Alison’s background in technology based education shows her mastery of the technical skills needed to help students achieve their goals. While working on the leadership conference alongside Alison, it was no challenge to understand what my role was or how I was to undertake my next responsibility. With detailed emails, organized Google Hangout sessions, scheduled meetings, and clear deadlines for deliverables, each and every student was equipped with the resources to ensure they could accomplish the work the needed.
