Course Pace



Class meetings occur at a specific time in a specific location according to a set schedule. When in class, the instructor typically sets the pace through lecture and/or activities. It is up to the student to set their own pace for much of the work that needs to be completed in an online course. While there are deadlines and due dates that must be met, students typically have quite a bit of flexibility in determining from where and at what time of day they participate in a course.
