How do I receive and hand in assignments?

All assignments are available in your online courseroom. Each week’s activities are clearly organized in the syllabus. You can view all assignments, due dates, and grading criteria to help you plan. You can view and print assignments, discuss them with your learning colleagues, and ask for feedback from your instructor. The courseroom also allows you to submit your assignments in a "drop box." How do I interact with my instructor and peers?

One of the greatest strengths of the VIT online learning environment is the opportunity to discuss issues and gain ideas from your instructors and other learners.

Will I be missing the give and take of a conventional classroom setting?

VIT offers a highly personal and interactive learning experience. In fact, many people find their aedu.eucation more interactive and engaging than sitting in a classroom. There are no lectures and no "back row." Everyone participates.

What time are classes held?

You can participate in course discussions at any time, day or night, wherever you have an Internet connection. Not all of your course work requires you to work online—much of your writing, and project work can be done offline. Most people enter the online courseroom several times each week to participate in discussion, but there is no set class schedule so you can “attend class” any time of day.

How and when do I enroll in online courses?

Many VIT programs accept new students each month. Your enrollment counselor will help you register for your first course and introduce you to your academic advisor, who helps you map your degree plan and make any adjustments needed along the way. To determine specific enrollment deadlines, browse programs and specializations and choose a specialization to view the enrollment timeline.
