Myth #2

There are no due dates in online courses

Although there is the flexibility of logging in at your convenience (vs. having to attend class at a certain time each day), online courses are not self-paced. The requirements of each course are different, but most will require you to log in several times per week and participate in course activities according to a set course schedule that indicates when assignments are due. It is very important to understand what is due when and to check-in frequently to your course to see any announcements posted by the instructor.
