An online course runs similarly to an in-class course, except your classroom is a website on the internet. You have a teacher, classmates, assignments, tests and deadlines.
Yes, online courses at LBC are self paced. While you can access your course material anytime, you are expected to complete the course requirements as outlined by your teacher in the critical path. You can access your login area on the website anytime after the start date, providing you register before the course starts.
Participate: Stay in contact with your teacher and your classmates through the discussion board and other activities. Participation often contributes to your final grade. Know your deadlines: Look for table of deadlines when you first login to your course site. If you feel you can't meet a deadline, let your teacher know as soon as possible don't wait until the last minute as it is often harder to accommodate your request then. Be patient: You have access to the course site 24x7, but remember your teacher and classmates are not sitting at the other end waiting for your email or discussion posting. Give them time to reply. Usually, you can expect a response within 48 hours or sooner. Be organized: Manage your time appropriately. As a guideline, you should give yourself about 2-3 hours per week to work through the course content and another 3-4 hours per week to complete assignments and participate in discussions and online activities. Read: It is very easy to skim information on the web, but it is important that you read through the material in your course site to ensure a positive learning experience.
The programme is self paced and has been developed in such a manner that you will not require any academic support. However, if you feel that you need some support from the professors, you can at any point of time request for live one to one chat session with the professors. You can get in touch with the administrator for such sessions.
For the benefit of all students there is an advisor and a tutor chat line, enabling real time contact.
