What types of courses does eConcordia offer?
eConcordia offers online Concordia University credit courses. All of our online courses meet the current academic requirements at the University.
How much time should I expect to spend on the course material on a weekly basis?
Credit students should expect to spend an average of four to six hours each week for each course they are taking. Please note that the time spent on each course is dependent on the course material itself as well as the rate at which each individual can learn the material. Therefore, four to six hours is an estimate only, and should be adjusted based on your ability to learn the material. Agendas are available for each course to assist students in planning their study time throughout the term.
How will I interact with my professor, teaching assistants and fellow classmates?
Through our interactive courseware, you will have the opportunity to communicate with your fellow classmates, your teaching assistants and your professor. Communication is fast and easy when using our discussion boards, email, and online meeting software. Teaching is highly interactive, with ongoing feedback, assessments, and monitoring. Other features, such as virtual whiteboards and breakaway rooms for discussion, as well as online forums and discussion boards, are also integrated into many courses.
I am not a Concordia student; can I take an online course for credit?
eConcordia courses can be taken even if you are not a student at Concordia University. You will, however, have to confirm ahead of time with your department that the course(s) meet the criteria for your program. You will also need to apply for authorization to have credits transferred to your school through the following website:
How long does it take to complete a course?
All eConcordia credit courses run for the duration of the term dates set by Concordia University. In other words, an online course takes the same amount of term time as its real world counterpart.
