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, take this short self-assessment. 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.
