What is "Course Orientation"

Course "Orientation"

The course information area is generally the first area students will see in their course and contains lots of important information about the course. The course orientation area (which may be called different things in different courses) contains the documents that you need to understand the requirements and expectations in your online course. While a fully online course does allow for a certain degree of flexibility on the part of the student, there will be deadlines that must be adhered to and policies/requirements that must be followed. It is crucial that an online student study and thoroughly understand the information that the instructor has posted in this area before jumping into their course.
