Educational Philosophy: On-line learning is very similar to a traditional classroom. Even though you are not meeting face-to-face, you are required to learn the same amount of material. My advise to you would be to spend the same amount of time on this course as you would a traditional course. You spend approximately 5 hours a week in the classroom, so spend at least 5 hours a week reading your lectures, taking quizzes, and exploring the information available in your virtual classroom. Spend additional time studying for your tests, writing papers and additional homework. If you do this, you should suceed in the virtual classroom.
