Online Learning

Simulation Labs, Norco, Nursing, Health Sciences, for Kelly Orgill, cqBoise State University’s Healthcare Simulation Certificate is delivered almost entirely online. Two of the three courses occur in a 15-week time span in the fall and spring semester and content is delivered through Blackboard, a web-based course-management system designed for students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online.

Blackboard enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion boards, virtual chat, online quizzes, an academic resource center, and more. The format of online classes is similar to traditional classes with regard to schedule and workload. Instructors provide students with assignments, set deadlines, and interact on a regular basis through discussion boards, instant chat, and email.

Time Commitment

The amount of time spent in an online course is equivalent to an in-person course. The big difference is students must schedule their time to review course materials instead of listening to a presenter.

There is a significant amount of reading along with writing of papers and discussing topics with classmates and the instructor. Again, it is your responsibility to schedule time during each day to complete these activities. Therefore, you must be motivated and willing to devote time to each course.
