How Does Online Learning Work?

Go at your own pace
The UMGA approach to online education allows learners to progress at their own pace at the time of day that works best for them. For example, if Susan does well in math and needs to spend more time in social studies, she can move through her math course quickly, and use the rest of her time focusing on social studies. Further, if she performs better in challenging subjects in the afternoon, this is the time of day she can dedicate to social studies. This example serves two purposes. First, it demonstrates the ability to move through a course independently based on a student’s individual ability. And, second, it demonstrates the ability to shift coursework to portions of a day when an individual student is most alert.
