Laurentian University has a reputation for academic excellence built over more than 45 years. Located in the city of Greater Sudbury in Ontario, Laurentian University is the educational institution of choice for more than 9,000 full and part-time students.With a growing list of doctoral and graduate level programs, significant research funding and facilities under construction, Laurentian University continues to build a reputation as a world class institution.
Laurentian University online courses are delivered through a Web-based platform that requires independent study and collaborative learning, encouraging individuals to take an active part in their learning experience.
Knowledgeable faculty foster a progressive learning environment. All courses are delivered over a 13-week period and require learners to complete online group projects and to participate in weekly online discussions with their colleagues and the course instructor. Most of the discussions will be asynchronous where learners log on at different intervals in the day to post and respond to messages.
Course grades will include marks for individual and group work, participation and contribution to discussion forums, and a final examination.
