Semester Online courses:
- are 15 weeks long;
- consist of small sections of 15-20 students;
- are NOT self paced;
- require 80 minutes of live (synchronous) online time each week;
- require extensive preparation before every live online session since there are fewer sessions than in a traditional course.
