This QEP would allow students to take up to 18 credits without having to pay more tuition and would also include the implementation of an online classroom.

  • Major requirement classes would be offered online, eliminating the difficult position that students are placed in when classes that are required for their major are only offered during one semester.
  • Online classes would allow students to have a regular weekly course load of attending five classes, while working towards six, one of which would be an online class. These classes could be created by utilizing further applications on the Black Board Learning Program.
  • There would be an orientation for students and faculty to educate them on the functionality of the Blackboard Learning System.
  • This QEP has the potential to enhance students’ classroom experiences and to bring students and faculty closer through the use of online communication and technologies.
