  2. Your course will be use a course management software called Edvance360. Your instructor will use E360 to organize and structure your course materials, assignments, and to facilitate engaging discussions as well as group activities.
  3. Attendance is critical! Your class will NOT meet face to face, but, participating in the course and following the instructors timeline is just important. While you don't have a synchronous time that you must be online, you do have to participate regularly. The online portion can be accessed anywhere, anytime! You must check in and participate regularly.
