On-ground courses at UoNA are supplemented with online activities using the Moodle platform allowing students to maximize in-person time in the classroom and support collaborative activities that take place remotely. Academic terms are scheduled to include lecture sessions, requiring students to attend those sessions in person. Students collaborate online with team members to develop applied learning projects that have real-world application and impact. In the last week of class, students present their applied learning projects to their faculty members and colleagues.
UoNA offers a wide selection of courses both on-ground and online. Online courses follow the same schedule and have the same academic learning outcome requirements as classroom-based courses.
In accordance with SEVP rules, UoNA international students may take one online course each term provided they are enrolled in at least one on-ground, classroom-based course. International students electing this option must be aware that they must maintain attendance and academic progress in the on-ground and online courses in order to remain in status for SEVP purposes.
Moodle Learning Management System
The University of North America uses the Moodlelearning management platform to supplement on-ground courses and serve as the delivery vehicle for online courses. Faculty and students find Moodle to be a user-friendly, easy- to-navigate interface that serves as a repository for course information, assignments and discussions. By accessing Moodle, students may:
· Review syllabi, reading lists, class schedules, and deliverable assignments
· Obtain copies of class presentations, handouts and notes
· Email the professor and fellow students
· Participate in graded discussion forums related to course topics, and
· Submit projects and assignments.
