What’s great about online courses? All types of students—not just those who consider themselves “techie”—enjoy and succeed in online classrooms. Online learning is as rigorous as a traditional class. Hamline has been offering online courses for more than 10 years. All courses are taught by experienced Hamline School of Education faculty, so you will receive the same excellent course content and outcomes that you would expect in an on-campus course. Online courses are often smaller so professors know individual students and their work. They can give more one-on-one attention to students—and online students are more likely to actively participate. You’ll build a sense of community and camaraderie with your classmates through online chats, assignments, readings, and discussions. Online learning is convenient, saving you commute time so that traffic and weather don’t get in the way of your learning. Taking an online course expands your professional resume, making you better equipped to use technology in the classroom and access online teaching tools.

Online learning FAQs What are the benefits of online learning? You can save commute time and money by learning from the comfort of your home. You can expand your professional skills by learning how to learn online, and you will have more options to participate actively with peers and professors, who will know you better due to increased online contact. Would online learning be a good fit for me? Online learning can be a good fit for most learners, especially those who have initiative and solid self-management skills. Is it hard to learn how to use the online classroom? Hamline University uses Blackboard and Moodle which are user-friendly learning platforms. Learning guides and support services are available for people new to online learning. Test drive an online course by visiting: learnonline.hamline.edu
Is online education high quality? All courses are taught by experienced Hamline School of Education faculty, so you will receive the same excellent course content and outcomes that you would expect in an on-campus course. When do classes meet? You will need to participate actively and regularly from the day the course begins. Online classes follow the same academic calendar as on-campus courses, but they usually do not have similar class times. That is, online learning is scaffolded to occur at multiple times during the week, and this is typically described in weekly schedules. How much time should I plan to spend outside of class? Plan to spend as much time with your online coursework as you would with an on campus course. Regular participation is required. Expect to spend 12 hours of time per credit each term for reading, research, writing, and projects outside of online class time. Example: If you are enrolled in a 4-credit course, expect to spend at least 48 hours of extra time for this work during a term.
Are online courses self-paced at Hamline? No. While you will not have designated class times as in a campus course, learning will be distributed throughout the week according to a schedule designed by the faculty member leading the course. How and when can I enroll in online courses? The registration process for online courses is identical to the process for on-campus courses. How will I be graded? Grading will be similar to on-campus courses. It will be established by the faculty member leading the course and explained in course materials. Will I ever have to visit the Hamline campus? No, online courses are entirely online. You will be able to access campus services online, including Bush Library. What is the computer requirement?
