courses blend the best of traditional education with innovative technology to
bring students a creative, high-quality learning experience. This fall, NIU is
offering more than 70 online courses from six of its colleges.
like in a traditional course, you will have an instructor, classmates, study
materials, papers and tests. Using a "blended model" of online instruction,
many online courses combine face-to-face meetings and field trips with online
activities that can include lectures, group projects, role-playing exercises
and learning games. Some instructors schedule regular chat sessions where the
whole class is online together.
