General Course Activities/How to Plan Your Time

Work is organized into modules of 1- 2 weeks in length.
All activities are fully asynchronous—there are no required meeting times. Our format allows flexibility so you can fit the following course learning activities into your schedule:
  • Homework/Case Study Assignments
  • Quizzes
  • Weekly Discussions
  • Labs/Lab Reports (for students taking the lab)
  • Exams
Most students dedicate 10-15 hours per week to the course; 13-18 if taking the lab (HA&P1-457-DL).
We recommend planning several 1- 2 hour study blocks throughout the week and checking into the course daily once the discussions begin.

Technology Requirements

This course uses the learning platform software called Desire2Learn (D2L). D2L integrates text, video, and audio. Before enrolling in the course, please review the D2L system requirements.
