Online Course Format
Online term-based courses provide the dynamic experience of a traditional class with the flexibility of a web-based environment. Most of your interactions with the instructor and other students will be online through CU Boulder’s online learning management system, Desire2Learn (D2L). Each online course is unique and may contain any combination of assignments including reading, writing, online quizzes, and discussion posts.
Some of our online courses are self-paced with set time limits for assignments and exams, and other courses follow set dates typical of a semester calendar as term-based courses.
