The Virtual Classroom Experience
Just as it goes traditionally, your first day of online class will serve as an orientation and introduction to the course. You’ll receive a syllabus, a schedule of assignments, and the general expectations of the class. There will also be a tour of our virtual cadaver lab.
From that point on, you’ll be given weekly modules that clearly outline when tasks are due. There will be weekly discussion posts that are required as part of both curriculum and attendance requirements. These discussion boards will allow you to interact directly with your instructor and classmates throughout the week.
The virtual classroom is accessible 24/7, including around the clock tech support by phone, chat or email should you ever need it.
