Michigan Tech Online Learning courses take approximately 14 weeks to complete, paralleling Michigan Tech's standard academic calendar. The courses are largely asynchronous, but you'll have ready access to your professor and your advisor.

Academics

Professors use the Blackboard® Learning Management System to present your course content. The Learning Management System organizes all of your course information and your syllabus, maintaining it in one easy-to-access location. In addition, the Learning Management System will facilitate your education through virtual classroom content and the latest technologies, like:

  • Audio-video lectures
  • Hyperlinked readings
  • iTunes U podcasts
  • Voice-over images
  • Online discussions
  • Interactive testing

Course work can be varied. You'll have textbook readings, as well as group case studies, and individual and team projects, papers, and presentations. To support the collaborative learning environment, you'll be provided with a set of personalized web collaboration tools, and have easy access to video web conferencing.

You—and other students in your online cohort—may communicate with your instructor by e-mail anytime. You may also talk to faculty and staff through Internet chat, Skype, and the telephone. You may seek clarification, respond to questions raised, or introduce other matters. Your classmates may participate in your e-mail communications with your professor and, likewise, you may engage in discussions launched by others.
