What is an online course?

« Go Back



Online courses involve completing a course online, by means of the internet, rather than the traditional way of going to a physical classroom on a weekly basis. Taking an online course at FIU requires that you have access to the Internet. For other technical requirements, please go to our Technical Requirements website to learn more.

There are many factors to consider when taking an online course such as:

  • communication between other students and the professor
  • taking quizzes and exams
  • submitting assignments
  • important due dates and time management
