Distance Learning offers a variety of courses and low-residency degree programs from the heart of its curriculum, translated for interactive online delivery by Naropa faculty. The dynamic online learning communities utilize the latest available technology to allow students to complete course material with a minimum of technological needs. Students interact with other students and the instructor through a variety of means, including message boards, a journal feature, chat rooms, and a document-sharing page. Students use password-protected web pages to access printed lectures, audio and video lectures, message boards, and online discussion areas. The classes are not self-paced; students progress with the instructor and other students throughout the traditional semester dates. Graduate and undergraduate classes are available. Students should expect to spend between six and ten hours per week during the semester to complete each class.
