There are many definitions of online learning, but at Rose-Hulman, online learning simply means that learning happens with the use of the internet and your computer. Students are asked to log onto Moodle, the learning management system, to access their online course. The syllabus, the course schedule, course content and real time sessions can all be accessed in Moodle.
You will have the opportunity for real time interactions with your classmates and your instructor with the use of Skype for Business (formerly Lync), and to interact through the discussion forums and other activities via Moodle. Your coursework is chunked up into modules. Module tasks may include discussions, group projects, simulations, formal papers, informal papers, briefs or problem sets.
The great news is that you can study from anywhere! You can log in at your convenience as long you meet the course requirements for posting and submitting assignments, taking exams and participating in any required sessions.
