  • What is a typical online class like?

    Online courses are usually six weeks, broken down into equal parts called seminars. On the first day of each seminar (week), the online instructor sends introductory information on the week's topic, restates the assignments from the course outline or module and sends an introductory lecture to begin the weeks' study. To stimulate discussions, the instructor typically includes questions related to the topic at the end of his/her lecture. 

    As the week progresses, you work on the readings and assignments, using the computer to participate in the class discussions, carry on private discussions with classmates and the instructor, ask questions, and get feedback. Instructors set deadlines for required work during the week. When they are due, you send them to the instructor or to the online classroom. Instructors grade the papers, provide feedback and comments, and provide you with your status each week.

  • How do online classes work?


    After you enroll, and are accepted to your online program, you sign-up, or "register" for your first courses. Like all Baker Online students, you will begin your online experience with a three-week online class designed to orient you to the Baker Online classroom, and review the expectations and requirements of Baker Online students. When you have completed this course successfully, you can move on to additional online courses.
