Participants should complete the work in the week it is scheduled. Participants must reach out to the instructor of that module to request an exception.
These courses consist of six to eight weeks of online learning. Some aspects are asynchronous (done on your own time) and some are synchronous (done as a class).
Courses includes high engagement, not only with the content, but also with your
peers and faculty. Assignments and knowledge checks are included throughout the course. In addition to reading and viewing content, students will engage in class discussions through discussion boards and attend regularly scheduled virtual classroom
sessions in real time. These virtual classroom sessions will be recorded for those for whom attendance is not possible.
Students who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate and digital badge.
Method of Evaluation and Grading Policy
The final grade will be based both on the assignments and participation. Participation includes completion of all aspects of the course, full participation in the discussions, and attendance or viewing of virtual classroom sessions. Faculty will grade
all assignments and provide feedback.
It is expected that all participants actively participate in the Discussion Board and Virtual Classroom and that all participants are respectful to each other and adhere to all ACUI policies.
There are no prerequisites for courses, but a computer with high-speed Internet connection will be required to submit and participate in course activities. A webcam is strongly encouraged for virtual classroom meetings.
