Many of the School of Applied Technology's Continuing Education courses and programs are designed specifically to compliment the schedule of the working professional. You can develop professional opportunities, make a career transition, gain job-specific training or get industry certification while maintaining your work-life balance.
Courses marked Classrooms Without Walls (CWW) offer learning and assessment beyond the traditional in-class on-campus methods. Online, accelerated, and blended learning, tutorial and combination classes and courses make the decision to continue your education a simpler one.
How does an online course work?
Students are guided through their courses by certified instructors. Before students begin a course, teachers make welcome phone calls to discuss course details including pace expectations and materials required for the course, if any. Login info will be emailed 3 days before course starts.
At any hour of the day, active students open the website, log into the class, work on assignments and projects then submit work to be graded. Teachers evaluate student work and send back grades and comments. Teachers and students also communicate by chat sessions, Skype, email, group discussions, to check on progress or answer questions. While students are welcome to work ahead, they must maintain a minimum pace to remain in the course.
In order to ensure academic integrity, courses that require a final exam worth more than 20% of the final grade must be written in a proctored setting. HUmber College does provide the option to write your exam in the comfort of your home or office via our Live Virtual Online Proctoring service at a fee of $60 + HST.
