Everything you need to know to get started
The Online Classroom
You will be part of a class from 10 to 20 students. Your instructor will contact you before the class begins with any information you will need to start the class. You will have dates when assignments are due and you will be expected to interact with both the instructor and your fellow classmates. This usually occurs through discussion forums, video conferencing, chats or email.
Our online faculty are the same faculty that teach many of our on-campus classes. They are outstanding in their respective fields as well as certified for online teaching.
You will be required to meet deadlines as assigned and participate in and complete activities as necessary. Online classes at USF are instructor led and have scheduled readings, assignments, discussions and exams.
Grading and Assessment
Depending on the discipline of your online course, your assessment may include online exams and quizzes, group projects, written assignments, or presentations.
