How Online Courses Work Video Transcript

Discover how online college courses really work. This video describes how online lecture notes and student forums for peer and professor interaction help assist students who are learning from remote locations. Students will also learn the purpose of individual and group based project assignments in online courses.

How Online Courses Work Video Overview

  1. Online Courses
    • In online courses, the professor posts his or her lecture notes online so you do not have to worry about taking notes during class. You can print out the lecture notes as well.
    • Many assignments in online courses are project-based that you will do either on an individual basis or as part of a group to be turned in and graded. Projects are often used because it can be hard to monitor tests in an online course.
  2. Communication
    • Most online courses have an online forum or discussion board for communication between the professor and students and student to student interaction.
    • Professors for online courses still hold office hours online, or they can be reached by telephone or through e-mail. For campus based students taking an online course, you can usually meet with your professor in person at his or her office during class office hours.
