Most of our online courses have some type of scheduled live web conference.  If your course has a web conference, everyone has access to the web conference link from the course site navigation once the course site is published at the beginning of the semester. Every scheduled live web conference throughout the semester will be recorded, and students will also have access to these recordings through the course website.

The CoE Online Course Web Conference Master Schedule is a google spreadsheet that we keep as up to date as possible in order to provide our students with advance information of specific web conference times.  We update this information as we receive it from course instructors. This is typically at least 2 months prior to the start of the semester.  If you do not see your course listed, then please check back because we continually update this schedule as we receive new information from instructors.

We do our best to provide an archive of example syllabi for our online courses. This archive provides our students with a rough idea of course topics, expectation, readings, assignments, etc. The course syllabi are organized by their home program, then by course number. Use the links below to browse the syllabus archive.

Students should keep the following in mind when viewing course syllabi:

  1. Example syllabus are not available for every course.
  2. Some courses are only available to students in certain programs. Check with your student services staff if you have questions about a particular course.
  3. Syllabus are available for view-only, and do not allow downloading.
  4. Since our courses evolve each time they’re offered, students should remember that the details from an example syllabus may change, such as textbook information, assignments, and dates. The information within these example syllabus should only be used for a tentative understanding of what you might expect if you take the course.
  5. The repository contains syllabi from all of our programs, so if you do not see the course or program you’re looking for, make sure to navigate through each page of results.
