Online learning allows you to participate in courses on the Internet. As an online student, you are expected to make regular contributions and to be an active participant in electronic discussions. The curriculum material and assignments are not set the way they are in a correspondence course; you will find the courses are more like face-to-face courses. The amount of time required for an online course is roughly equivalent to the time spent travelling to and from campus and participating in courses. You can expect to spend more time reading and responding to your fellow students, and you cannot participate in online learning silently!
Courses are offered to coincide with the UCFV semesters, and they are taught by UCFV faculty. Upon successful completion, you can use online course credits toward a certificate, diploma, or degree. Check the UCFV fall, winter, and spring timetables for online course offerings (designated ON).
In order to participate in an online class, you need a Windows-based or
Mac computer, a modem (56K or faster), an account with an internet service
provider, and internet browser software such as Netscape or Internet Explorer.
The software used for UCFV online courses is WebCT. This program is easy to use as long as you have computer basics. For those new to computer-mediated courses, workshops are provided at the beginning of each semester. Please see the Important Dates section at https://online.ufv.ca/public/Online/index.html for more information about these workshops.
If you have enrolled in a course that is offered online, visit https://online.ufv.ca/public/Online/index.html (for instuctions to log onto your course.) Most courses begin the first day of the semester.
