Online courses at The University of Akron begin and end on the semester schedule, and assignments and tests have specific deadlines. Although you do not have to travel to campus to attend courses, you must log in often to stay on track with due dates and to successfully complete each course.
Delivered completely online via Springboard, online courses provide the same quality content as face-to-face courses while using technologically advanced methods and facilitating a high level of interaction with your instructor and classmates.
This orientation is designed to look just like an online course you may take in the future. You will find many useful topics geared towards helping you understand what it means to be an online student. Read through the information and take the quizzes to find out if online learning is right for you.
The Diving Into Springboard orientation should take 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
