UCFV has been offering online courses in a variety of programs since 1994. Courses are offered on a semester basis and taught by our regular faculty. Upon successful completion, online courses can be used as credit towards a certificate, diploma, or degree.

Online learning allows you to participate in university-level courses without physically being on campus. In effect, you no longer have to go to school, but rather, school comes to you via computer and the Internet. You choose the time of day and days of the week to participate. Online learning differs from traditional correspondence distance education in terms of interactivity. As an online student you will be expected to make regular contributions and be an active participant in electronic discussions.

In order to participate in an online class you need a Windows-based or Mac computer, a modem (28.8 or faster), an account with an Internet service provider (i.e., Internet Direct, Uniserve, Telus, etc.) and Internet browser software such as Internet Explorer or Netscape.

The online learning system is designed so that those with Internet e-mail or discussion group experience can begin their classes without technological instructions. For those new to Internet communication, hands-on workshops are held prior to the start of each semester.
