Cedarville’s online courses are asynchronous, meaning that there is no set time you will meet altogether with your class online. Courses are divided into one-week units, and students can accomplish weekly requirements at their own convenience. Students who set aside time daily to interact with course material will experience the most success. A three-semester-hour course that spans the entire semester should require about 8-10 hours of study time per week. Eight-week courses will require 12-14 hours of weekly study time.
Online courses at Cedarville use Moodle and a course website. Students submit their assignments in Moodle for the course professor to review and assess. The course website provides students with access to the course content and assignment instructions, including the course syllabus. Students can only access the course website through Moodle.
On the main course page, all Moodle courses have a welcome box at the top of the page where you will find basic class information, your professor’s information, and the link to the course website.
Below the welcome box you will see the layout of every week/unit and the assignments that you will need to complete for each week/unit.
To access your Moodle profile, click on My Profile in the blue menu bar at the top of the screen, and you can check on your grades by clicking on Grades under Settings on the right.
