Distance Education is a formal educational process in which the majority of the instruction in a course occurs when students and instructors are not in the same place. North American University offers distance education courses in fully online format. An online course is defined as one for which all regularly scheduled face-to-face class meetings are replaced by required learning activities completed at a distance and managed online. Online courses allow students to take courses from geographically remote locations without the need to come to campus.
Online courses are delivered entirely using distance education tools through NAU’s J1 eLearning online course management system. In order to see your courses and assignments, please log into your Office 365 account, then click ‘MyPortal’ app. You will see ‘My Courses’ section at the left hand-side menu.
Participation in tese online courses necessitates access to a personal computer or a compatible mobile device with internet connectivity, in addition to a reliable internet service provider. These courses employ a versatile blend of synchronous and asynchronous activities to cater to diverse learning preferences. A comprehensive review of our Technology Requirements is strongly encouraged to ensure the fulfillment of all prerequisites for successful engagement in online courses.
In this digital learning environment, students are urged to uphold Netiquette guidelines, as interactions occur exclusively in the virtual realm, involving student-instructor, student-content, and student-student exchanges. By adhering to these principles, students can maximize their experience in the online academic milieu.
