How Classes Work
The Learning Experience
Our objective is to create a dynamic, interactive distance
learning environment for our students. To that end, we will
use a variety of delivery methods, fitting each learning activity
to the most appropriate technology.
Students enrolled in the MSN Program will learn through a
combination of e-mail discussion, Web site exploration, video,
and traditional textbook reading and writing assignments.
Class Discussion / Blackboard
Class discussion is currently accomplished through "Blackboard"
software. The instructor "posts" assignments and
discussion prompts to the class via Blackboard, and students
respond and interact by using the Blackboard menu at the course
Learning/Exploring on the Web
Students will use the course Web site for a variety of activities
including getting assignments, conducting research, obtaining
the latest program and class news and information, etc.
Your Feedback is Important
Any learning environment is always a work-in-progress, whether
it's a traditional classroom or a high-tech distance learning
program. Therefore, our program and class structure is continuously
being evaluated and refined. We need our students to talk
to us about what's working and what isn't. Please E-mail your
