Outside of real-time, virtual classroom experiences, you’ll complete self-paced classwork—or asynchronous learning modules—each week in preparation for the live classes. The learning modules include video lectures, discussion boards, practice activities, and collaborative assignments so you can practice and apply what you’ve learned—on your own time, as your schedule allows. You can access the learning modules through the Canvas learning management system and review them as often as you’d like.
During live, virtual classes, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with your faculty and peers and participate in meaningful discourse in a supportive and engaging learning environment. Live chat and presentation features allow you to ask questions, share insights and get feedback in real time. Online office hours, peer networking and group work are also available to you in this real-time format.
As an online student, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved with school and student organizations that will allow you to develop your skills, meet new people, receive coaching and mentoring, network and more. For example, HackCWRU is Cleveland’s premier annual student-run hackathon that brings more than 500 student hackers from universities and high schools around the globe to the CWRU campus to tackle real-world problems in fields like healthcare and fintech. Which student organizations appeal to you?
