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 o365 account, then click ‘MyPortal’ app. You will see ‘My Courses’ section at the left hand-side menu.
In order to successfully take part in an online course students are expected to have access to a personal computer or a compatible mobile device with Internet access, and an Internet service provider. Our online courses have both synchronous and asynchronous activities. Please review our Technology Requirements to ensure that you fulfill all the requirements of an online course. Students are expected to follow Netiquette rules as student-instructor, student-content, and student-student interactions take place entirely online.
