Distance Learning Option
Students enrolled in distance learning attend class using internet-based courseware in the same classes as on-campus students. The resulting distance learning experience duplicates, to the extent possible, the group experience of attending class and the personal interaction with both other students and course instructors. This personalized experience provides direct and ongoing interaction opportunities that maximize students' opportunities to fully participate in the Applied Behavior Analysis Program. It is important to note that the ABA program's distance learning program is synchronous and not self-paced. Students enrolled in distance learning attend and participate in class using courseware at the scheduled class times. Students will also complete each of course projects, quizzes, and exams at the scheduled time with the other members of their class. Written assignments are transmitted electronically and quizzes and exams are given online. These procedures are designed to insure the highest level of academic rigor in both classroom and distance learning.
