What to expect in a course?In general, you will encounter: (1) learner-to-instructor and learner-to-learner interactions, (2) reading/writing assignments and projects, (3) discussion forums (posting your thoughts and responding to others in a timely manner, and (4) collaborative efforts with other learners.
You may move freely in and out of the learning experience, while making sure to meet posted deadlines. Unlike an independent study experience where you work mostly alone and at your own pace, online requires you to work alongside other learners at a pace set by the learning community.
SBU is a member of the Sloan Consortium an institutional and professional leadership organization dedicated to integrating online education into the mainstream of higher education and helping institutions and individual educators improve the quality, scale, and breadth of education.
