Student Online Learning Success
As of March 22, 2020, AUC has temporarily suspended face-to-face instruction. All courses will be offered online. It is important that you are 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.
Guidelines for Successful Transition to Online Classes
Academic integrity is a commitment, even in the face of adversity, to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility.
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 small class session, office hours, meetings with your instructors, tutorials via a videoconference tool such as Zoom.
Participate in an Online Class Via Zoom
It’s possible that your instructor will 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
These are approaches to learning where you can access posted assignments and activities, recorded lectures, readings, online discussions, videos on Blackboard.
