eLearning courses give you the opportunity to gain knowledge using current technology with flexible scheduling and learning environment. To see if you are ready for eLearning, go through this short Online Readiness Checklist. If you are considering enrolling in an online degree or certificate, we highly recommend you go through the Open SUNY readiness guide.
You will need to have access to a computer with an Internet connection to participate in both online and hybrid (blended) courses. In online courses you can attend class from anywhere as long as you have access to a personal computer with an Internet connection. In hybrid (blended) courses you still get to have on campus class time, but the face-to-face time is reduced. The reduction of class time will be replaced with online activities. You can access your course 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Although you can work at your own pace and choose when to "attend" class, each online course has a definite time-line and weekly deadlines. In addition, some online courses may require a proctored exam.
