  How You'll Take Classes

Pace uses a variety of media to deliver and teach classes, including:

Blackboard via the Internet
Print Textbooks
Discussion Boards
Email

Blackboard via the Internet
Once you've registered for classes, you'll receive a user ID to access our courseware - Blackboard. Here you will find everything from information about your instructor and classmates to instructional materials, reading materials, homework assignments, discussion boards, and other course resources. You'll visit Blackboard every week to access lectures, new assignments and connect with classmates. In addition, we'll deliver some content via streaming media using HorizonLive among other applications. To get a better sense of what online learning is like at Pace, visit About Online Learning.

Print Textbooks
Just as with a traditional university program, Pace online courses require textbooks that will provide you with reading material each week, and will serve as a reference for you once the course is over. Pace's online Bookstore has all textbooks used in our online courses in stock. Once you register for a class, simply visit the bookstore and enter in the Course ID to locate the books you will need. You can place your order online or over the phone.

Discussion Boards
Because our students live and work all over the U.S., discussion boards specific to each class give all students, regardless of where they are located, a chance to discuss course work and exercises with fellow classmates. Instructors often pose problems or questions on the boards, and students discuss solutions. In addition, since you'll always have access to each discussion for your class - the boards are a great place to look for help if you need it. It is also through your participation in these discussions that your instructor will be able to assess how well you are learning the course work.

Email
Email is the primary means of communication between you and your instructor. Your instructor will use email to send you announcements, notes and comments on assignments as well as feedback on quizzes, exams or other projects. You'll use email when you need to communicate with your instructor on an individual and more private basis, and will also have the ability to communicate with any and all of your classmates this way as well. Addresses for your instructor and all your classmates will be listed under the Communication button in the courseware.
