Online courses may include all or some of the following instructional delivery methods: videostreamed class lectures, video clips, audio components, guided readings, chatrooms, interactive web activities, and threaded discussions. In addition, instructors are available to assist students according to their course policy via email, online chat or by phone. A small number of courses require scheduled virtual class meetings using a microphone and headset, videoconferencing, or are self-directed. Students will find easy step-by-step instructions to link to the University of Delaware computer network from home or office at: www.pcs.udel.edu/udonline/start.
It is required that all students test their course log-on access by the beginning of the semester. If students have technical difficulties viewing videostreamed lectures over the Internet, it may be possible to request instructional media as an alternative viewing option. Only courses with videostreamed lectures have this option. They are designated by stating "CDs or DVDs available upon request" in the course notes. Instructions on how to request instructional media will be provided to students in a welcome email or postcard after students register. For the optimal educational experience high speed Internet access is required for all Online courses.
Visiting the following website gives a detailed profile of each course including a sample of the course syllabus, the delivery method, and a course demonstration that allows students to check their computer and Internet connection to ensure course access.
