USF requires that online courses have the same expectations and requirements as on-campus courses. Online courses are instructor led and have scheduled readings, assignments, discussions and exams. They are considered accelerated with accelerated timelines. Online students will be expected to:
Δ Spend a minimum of 10 hours per week commitment on your coursework and activities.
Δ Have a webcam.
Δ Check your courses on MyUSF daily to keep current with assignments and requirements.
Δ Participate in course activities.
Δ Complete all assignments by the given due date.
Δ Complete all coursework independently unless otherwise noted.
Δ Hand in assignments and actively participate in group work. Any time you fail to do so, it will be counted as an absence.
Δ Abide by any additional guidelines set by the instructor (see course syllabus).
In order to be successful at online learning you will need to set and maintain a schedule which allows you to keep up with your coursework and assignments. It is vital to stay current with the concepts taught. If at any time you feel you do not understand what is being taught, please contact your instructor. You can meet through WebEx or by phone to make sure you do not fall behind.
