The Global Campus is made up of Online and RTV Courses
Global Campus Students
Global Campus students have access to all of the services and tools as students who attend classes on campus do. There are some services and expectations specific to the Global Campus and online learning that are described in this orientation.
Each course follows a weekly schedule for assignments which is outlined in the syllabus and course calendar. What day and time you access the course to complete work is up to you but the due dates for assignments must be met. Courses are delivered through Blackboard Learn, which houses all of the information students need in its virtual environment.
Real-Time Virtual Classes
Classes are held at a scheduled time and students meet virtually in Blackboard Collaborate. Live faculty deliver key learning components, including short lectures, discussions, activities, and group projects. Course materials, including assignments, assessments, and supplemental content, are housed in Blackboard Learn and are available at any time.
Students can meet on-campus in computer labs, dedicated space for RTV, or at any off-campus location of their choosing provided it is equipped with a broadband internet connection (e.g. their primary office space, or their home). If you attend on campus, you will need to provide a USB headset with a microphone. DU technical support is available via phone as needed throughout the semester.
