Many students find they participate and enjoy learning online more than they ever did in a traditional classroom. With 24/7 accessibility from your desktop, laptop or mobile device, it's the easiest and most convenient way to balance work, school and family life.
You’ll access your classes through JU’s online learning platform. Course content will include informative videos, interactive media, discussion boards and chat rooms.
Online classes at JU are asynchronous, meaning you don’t have to be online at any particular time.
Each week’s assignments and discussions are presented in an easy-to-follow format. You must complete assignments according to the schedule established by your professor.
With dynamic features such as online chat rooms, streaming video, discussion boards and simulations, Jacksonville's online programs allow you to experience rich, real-time interaction anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Whenever you have a question about an assignment or need to collaborate with a colleague, a network of support is always available as you work toward your degree or certificate. Connect with participants and instructors through email, discussion boards and live sessions, featuring engaging whiteboards that help you visualize key points of discussion.
A Day in the Life
From enrollment to program completion, you are never alone. Online learning is a great way to meet, collaborate and network with professionals from across the nation and around the world. Plus, you're sure to find Jacksonville's communities outside the online classroom, through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more.
We’ve had thousands of online students successfully complete their education while balancing work, families, and hectic schedules. See what a day in the life of an online student looks like.
Q: When do you find time to study each day?
A: My online experience was wonderful. It allowed me the flexibility and the adaptability to agree with my lifestyle. I could go to class early in the morning or late at night. I could do it on vacation, so when I traveled I could sign into airport wi-fi while I was waiting for my airplane and attend the class – just listen to the lecture online. The flexibility was phenomenal.
Q: What advice would you give someone thinking about going back to school to complete their degree?
A: Do it. It was the best thing that I've ever done. I know that since I finished my ADM program that I'd always wanted to go back and get an upper level degree. It is the best thing that you could do for yourself. It's the best thing I have done. And don't stop at your BSN. Continue on with your MSN…and further if you want! I'm starting my MSN in January.
