How are the "On-site" and "Online" portions of the course conducted?
On-site: Course will be in a computer lab on the campus of the Monterey Institute. Students must be able to attend the classes in Monterey as well as the online portions. The full-service computer lab with an instructor terminal, LCD overhead projector and all required software preloaded onto the machines will be provided, so students do not need to bring their laptops, but are welcome to do so.
Online: Course uses the same collaborative technology that most major companies and academic institutions use today for online meetings and “virtual” classrooms. You will meet the instructor and all your classmates in an on-line forum via this technology. Before each class you will be emailed attendance information which will enable audio and video feeds for class. Students can attend from anywhere in the world if they have ready access to a high-speed internet connection.
