Online courses are different from the traditional face to face (F2F) courses. There are few if any times when the whole class meets together in the same place at the same time. There are no traditional lectures or study times. Instead, there is much more emphasis on the learner and reflecting on what is learned. Online learning is student centered.

It’s up to the instructor, to supply the resources, assignments and deadlines they need to test their knowledge, and find new ways to apply it within the schedule set by the instructor.
