Online learning is learner-driven, internet-based instruction delivered through the e-Racer online course system. Online learning is ideal for students with work obligations, family obligations, travel constraints, or time/schedule conflicts.
Most online courses involve reading documents posted online, taking online tests/quizzes, posting to message boards and completing other activities as decided by instructors.
