*Online Learning Group: An online learning group course requires you to interact with other students and your instructor. Semester start and end dates are critical for a learning group course. The group of students will start the course together, work through the course materials and assignments together, and finish together. This type of course has greater accountability because the courses have weekly due dates which are to be followed throughout the semester. 

 

*Online Independent Study: An online independent study course means that while you study, you are independent of other students, weekly due dates, and regular interaction with your professor. You may work on the course at your own pace as long as you are able to complete the course by the end of the semester.
