Kaplan University offers many online degree programs—everything from certificates to master’s options. Each program has core requirements, major requirements, and open electives. Generally, the typical online class consists of lectures and live seminars. Students can access the class lectures via a link on their student home page, and the times for the hour-long seminars are also posted here. Since all these courses are done online, the student-teacher relationship relies heavily on a student’s ability to communicate. Professors can be reached through e-mail, AIM, or phone. The professors also encourage students to interact with one another by discussing what they just learned through discussion board posts and the live seminars—it is usually a requirement to make a certain number of discussion board posts a week. The discussion boards allow students to give their feedback, and each student offers a different perspective in their answers to the given questions. All tests are done online. Most are timed, but they generally give you adequate time to complete them.
If you want good grades, it’s in your best interest to get all your work in on time because points are deducted in each class for late homework or assignments given by the professors. Also, it is hard to catch up if you fall behind on your assignments, which will cause some stress, so take this into consideration. In terms of technology, you need to have basic knowledge to attend an online university, but Kaplan will work with you every step of the way to help make you comfortable.
