About distance education
Distance education, or online classes, share the same objectives and quality instruction as our degree programs and traditional "on-campus" classes; distance courses have the same requirements and typically the same assignments. Concordia's online learners use the Blackboard learning managment system.
Many of the online classes use a 45-minute "class meeting chat" each week. This will be a live, online, group discussion of course content. These chats are always on the same evening at the same time each week. Bulletin board discussions are also integral components of online classes, and provide platforms for students to share information and refine their thoughts while gaining knowledge on a topic.
About Intensive programming
Intensive courses are offered at an accelerated pace of seven weeks in length, instead of the traditional 16 week semester course and provide students with an in-depth learning experience.
