Student Online Learning Success
Last updated on December 6, 2020
As of March 22, 2020, all AUC courses will be offered either fully online or with partial face-to-face sessions. You must be aware of the differences between face-to-face study and taking a course online. Here are some guidelines to help you to complete your courses successfully. These guidelines will be constantly updated.

What to Expect when Learning Online
Learning in Real-Time
As part of your online learning experience, you may be learning in different ways such as virtually attending a class session, meetings with your instructors, and/or tutorials via a videoconference tool such as Zoom.
Participate in an Online Class Via Zoom
Your instructor may use Zoom to conduct a live lesson or a meeting online. In this case, you will need to have a microphone and webcam (built-in or connected to your computer) if the instructor requires audio and video participation.
Learning at Your Own Pace
During these challenging times, you could take the opportunity of learning at your own pace. Setting your study schedule is more flexible with online learning while having access to content, resources, and other useful material provided by your instructors. Learning Management Systems (LMS) facilitate having access to all material shared by your instructor and also facilitate communication.

It is important that you know how to navigate your course to make sure that your assignments are turned in on time, you know how to communicate with your instructor and classmates, and you know where to go to keep up to date on class requirements.
