An on-line class utilizes the Internet and a web browser as a means of creating a learning environment outside of the traditional classroom. Live classes will take place in our Virtual classroom. Students will be able to access their class material and communicate with their classmates and instructors through the use of a discussion forum. The on-line courses follow a classroom structure of covering weekly lessons. Students can access their class materials any-time of the day and anywhere they have access to the Internet.
Anyone can take an on-line course as long as they have access to a computer with Internet capabilities, have an active email account and have a good understanding of how a computer works. An on-line student also has to be motivated to participate in discussion forums and regularly check the Niritech’s e-Institute learning portal and keep up with the course work.
Live classes are held within our virtual classroom. Students will sign into the course portal to access live classes.
Once students begin their class work, they will find that through the use of the on-line site tools, they will be able to navigate within the class portal. They will be able to post or read assignments, download files from your instructor and upload assignments. Our instructors will primarily be contacting students through the discussion forum or by email.
Like a traditional class, on-line classes managed by an instructor who will conduct weekly real-time classes, give assignments, answer questions, lead discussions and assign grades.
