How does it work?
At Baker College Online, you take your entire degree program through your computer, using the Internet to link faculty and students. This process can occur between two computers in the same town or between computers on opposite sides of the earth, at whatever time best fits into your schedule.
All students in Baker’s online environment become actively involved in interactive learning groups. Courses are typically six weeks in length and have regularly scheduled beginning and end dates. On the first day of each course the online instructor sends an introductory lecture to begin the study process for the week. To stimulate discussions, the instructor would also typically include discussion questions related to the topic at the end of his/her lecture.
As the week progresses, you work on your readings and assignments, and you participate in classroom discussions using the computer. Your instructors are readily available to receive your questions and to provide feedback, and they keep you informed of your status weekly. You should never be unaware of what is expected of you.
