What is an Online Course?

Online courses developed in collaboration between University of Alabama faculty and the ITAS Team are delivered in Blackboard, the University’s course learning management system.  In this environment students access course materials, conduct course activities, interact with other students, participate in discussion and collaborate on projects.  In addition, students interact with their professors and complete examinations in a secure online environment.  The ITAS Team works closely with faculty to assure that online courses are engaging, interactive and support the same academic goals as courses delivered on campus in Tuscaloosa.
