Style, Format, and Pace

  1. Courses are paced by week. While there is flexibility with online learning around when students interact with the course, students are expected to login to the course on an almost daily basis and keep up each week with all course materials and assignments.  Deadlines are structured throughout the semester.

  2. Frequent interaction with the instructor and other students through synchronous video and/or asynchronous discussion boards will be required.

  3. Some course activities may require that students work and interact in groups.

  4. Late assignment submissions will not be accepted, unless the student documents illness, family emergency or similar hardship. An exception will be allowed solely at the discretion of the instructor.

  5. Course dates and times will be based on Eastern Standard Time (EST) in the United States. Students in other time zones are responsible for noting the time differences and adjusting accordingly.

  6. Some courses may have proctored midterm and final exams. If you are within fifty miles of Tufts University, you will be required to come to Medford, MA for your exam. If you are more than fifty miles away from Tufts, you may be responsible for finding your own proctor or taking your exam through a remote proctoring service.  For more information, please visit Online Specific Policies.
