What is an online course? Students unfamiliar with distance education may be asking themselves, "How do HS University's online classes work?" The reality is that classes are laid out online much the same way they would be in a classroom, it’s just that students don’t have to travel to that classroom to take part. Here is a general overview of what students can expect when taking an online class, from getting started to the basics of completing assignments online. 

  • Logging On. To get started with our online class, students will need a newer computer, a reliable internet connection and the software required by the University (For HS University, it would be word processor and internet browser.) Once these requirements have been met, students can start completing coursework. First, students will log into our Ecampus. This will take you to a place where you can see all the courses you have signed up for and allow you to view material related to each. HS University will use the course management software developed by Blackboard. If you need any help navigating, you can contact your professor or the online technical support.
  • Listening to and Reading Lecture Material. Just as if you were in a regular classroom, your course will begin by listening to or reading  lectures from your professor, which is usually recorded and uploaded onto the main site or presented as a text or slideshow document. Depending on the course, students may need to listen to or read lectures just once or twice a week. Just like in any other class, students should be taking notes as they go.
  • Completing Assignments. Some assignments for class may need to be completed online. Students will usually be able to find a section on their course management software where these assignments can be found. Some will need to be completed online and some off. All will come with deadlines and students will need to make sure to upload or complete the work before the deadline if they want to get credit. Most courses will combine shorter assignments with a larger long-term assignment that will be due at the end of the semester, sometimes taking the place of a final exam. Students can also expect to be assigned reading material which they will find online or will be provided the book by the University.
  • Engaging in Discussion. HS University will require students to engage in weekly discussions with the rest of the class, the professor or both. This means posting to a discussion board or participating in group chats held at a specific date and time. There may be a prompt for students to respond to or students may be asked to come up with their own discussion topics. It will vary by class and the preference of the professor.

Listening to and reading lectures, doing homework, handing in papers and talking with your peers– it doesn’t sound so different than any traditional class. In reality, the experience most students have with online education is very similar to attending courses on campus.

Another great feature of attending courses online at HS University is...

Free Courses

The newest entry to our online education is the MOOC, or massive open online course, developed by schools such as Harvard, Stanford, and MIT. These courses have been, and continue to be, developed as part of our college’s mission to improve overall knowledge at little or no cost. A typical class includes several short, recorded weekly lecture modules and supplemental reading assignments. There is usually homework (graded by computer or other attendees), and possibly a few online meetings where you can speak with other students or the instructor.

MOOCs are different from most online courses because of the number of students involved (thousands at a time), the prestige of the professor, and the status of the school offering the course. While these courses are free, they don’t offer college credit, but are still an excellent way to meet our continuing education credit requrirements.
