So, what are Eokul online classes really like?
Thank you for this important question. Some of you may be familiar with the internet proliferation of forums and web chat rooms. Eokul is not unlike that.
Yet, similar to traditional on-campus classes, your school rooms have students, advisors, and multimedia facilities. Students communicate and ask questions using interactive online discussion forums, email, phone, and various other installations.
Voice to text and text to voice is enabled but at current technology, is not yet word perfect. However you are perfectly able to upload images, video, slideshows, charts, and most digital work, as well as provide and receive like feedback.
Online classes are arranged flexibly and work well within your schedule. Discussions, lectures, and assignments can all be reviewed online (as well as ‘hard copied’ for later) at any time. ALERT! Specific assignments DO have specific and strict deadlines.
If I cannot attend a live class session, can I access a recording later?
Yes! You can relax. Every class is duly recorded and links to these are made available to class members usually in as little as 5 minutes of a live session completing.
Are live class sessions restricted to certain sizes?
Can students from countries outside the US attend Eokul?
Definitely. Being internationally and regionally accredited, allows us to enroll students in all states of the US as well as in any country throughout the world.
How exactly are classes scheduled?
Tuition is asynchronous, which means that students can access classes at any time. So select times and days that work best for you – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Then using technology such as Skype, a live online classroom, a microphone, virtual whiteboard, webcams and the like, near unlimited assistance and live interaction is available from educational facilitators and instructors. They naturally have set daily and weekly times in the classroom online, but they can also make themselves available outside those times by appointment.
