Saint Xavier University Online utilizes mostly full-time professors that are experts in their field. Where Saint Xavier University does utilize adjunct instructors, our standards for these individuals allow us to expose students to instructors whose expertise is the result of their current work in the fields of study they teach, bringing invaluable real-world experience to the classroom.
In online courses, students attend class by accessing the virtual classroom through an online learning system. Similar to a traditional course, students complete assignments according to the class schedule. These assignments might include completing readings from a textbook or current article, writing a paper, completing a project, or contributing to the course discussion. Students communicate regularly with the instructor and classmates via online discussion forums.
Online courses are not self-paced, independent study courses. Students are required to complete assignments according to the class schedule, to maintain regular contact with the instructor, and to participate in online class discussions. Often, online students report that the online learning experience is richer than a traditional classroom because of the level of engagement and discussion from fellow students living around the country and even the world.
No, but you are required to stay on schedule with assignments and login multiple times per week. You have the flexibility of choosing the day of the week and the time of day or night you want to log on to the Internet to work on an assignment, but you must complete your assignments and turn them in (through the online course) by the specified date and time. Some classes may have several due dates each week; others may require work only once per week.
