Taking an online course requires a student with motivation and access to the neccessary pc and software requirements. If you are new to taking courses online, you also may want to take an online orientation workshop, offered in the Balsam building at the beginning of the semester. This will help you get up to speed on how to use Moodle to navigate your online course. Please contact Kathie Doole at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Only a few courses are offered online in the DME program. Typically you can find first and second semester courses online. Find out more about requirements for specific online courses in the BCT department.
