How Will Learning Take Place:
This program was designed to make challenging coursework accessible and understandable to today’s students. The following highlights how students learn with Southlands online courses:
- Choosing The Right Coursework: With the flexibility of an online environment, students have more options for choosing the courses they want.
- Courses On Your Schedule: In the traditional classroom, everyone must follow the bell schedule. With SCS online, we understand that this may not be what is best for you. SCS will set a pacing schedule, and you decide when you attend class
- Staying On Pace: You will be given a pacing that provides you with weekly assignment deadlines in order to ensure you progress through material at an appropriate pace.
- Engaging With Content: The learning environment is rich with multi-media tools that help you learn. With reading content, animations, interactive exercises, instructional videos, and live teaching sessions in each class, you will engage in content like never before.
- Teacher / Student Interaction: Instruction takes place through pre-recorded instructional sessions, live instructional sessions, one-on-one time with the teacher, discussion forums, and teacher-designed learning activities.
- Classroom Discussions: A vital part of the learning process includes critical thinking and academic discussions. In each class, academic discussions take place through forums.
- Asking Questions: Students can ask questions of teachers by using the weekly questions forum, live sessions, instant messaging, or email.
- Completing Assessments: For each lesson, you will complete assignments, such as projects, presentations, journals, portfolios, graphic organizers, academic essays, product creation, self-reflection & evaluation exercises, discussion forums, research and academic reporting, as well as traditional quizzes and tests.
- Getting Feedback: Teachers give you individualized feedback and update your grades on a weekly basis. Additionally, many interactive exercises are programmed to provide you with instant feedback, which allows you to continually improve and reach your maximum potential!
