Online Learning: Getting Started

This guide will help you get ready to participate in an online academic program here at Canisius University.

A big part of this is familiarizing yourself with web-based resources available to you as a Canisius student, but there are other things you should consider as well.  Good online students develop time-management skills, good written communication skills, and a sense of commitment to their courses as learning communities. Online courses might offer more schedule flexibility, but they are just as rigorous as classroom or F2F (face-to-face) courses, and have deadlines that you must meet to be successful. Canisius University online courses are typically not self-paced, and reflect our commitment to quality and value: a professor or professors develop and teach every course.
