Orientation to Internet Courses
If this is the first time you have enrolled in a course online, make plans to attend the required orientation before classes start. Register for OLRN 0001, Orientation to Online Learning. The orientation to online learning is a fee, non-credit course for students new to online learning. The orientation can be completed all online. The purpose of the orinetation is to provide students with information about learning online. Students will have an opportunity to practice using some of the more common tools used in the online environment.
An Internet Course is a course that meets online the majority or all of the time. Internet courses offer the convenience and flexibility of participating in a course without a formal schedule or location. However, some Internet Courses do require that you attend campus some of the time (less than 15% of the time). You might be required to come to campus to take tests, for presentations, or for course orientations. Before you enroll, you should be confident about your own learning style and computer skills.

A Blended Course (also referred to as a hybrid) is a course that replaces some of the face-to-face classroom sessions with online instruction. Classes do meet on campus for a major portion of time. You can expect to spend between 50-84% of the class time completing activities on your own using the Internet.
