Telecourses include weekly video programs, textbooks, assignments and periodic exams. Students are required to use email and the Internet. Each telecourse has an assigned instructor who serves as a personal contact, answers questions, and evaluates examinations and assignments. Exams usually need to be taken on campus. A $25 fee is charged for each telecourse. Telecourses can be found on the web schedule with 'Telecourse" in the Bldg/Rm column and a "T" in the note column.
- All telecourse students need to log into Moodle at least once during the first week of classes. Learn more about Moodle by exploring Moodle Help for Students. Log in as a guest if you're not already enrolled in a Moodle course.
- Some telecourses have an optional orientation session during the first week of classes. Times and locations are also found on the web schedule under the course listing. If no orientation is listed, then just log into Moodle where you'll find the syllabus, viewing schedule, and any online orientation materials.
- Choose how to view the video lessons. Check the viewing options to see which ones are available for your course and work best for you.
- If your course has on-campus exams and you live outside of the local area, you'll need to find a proctor.
