Taking Online Courses

Learners access primary content and instruction from the UNM Learning Management System using a variety of tools including email, chat, discussion boards, web pages, and multimedia technologies. Specific technologies employed will vary by course and instructor. Depending on the teaching style of the instructor and the course content, instruction can take place synchronously (all participants in the course log in at the same time) or asynchronously (participants log in and participate as their schedule permits), or some combination of the above.

Check the online course listings for specific information at http://online.unm.edu/.

Online courses follow the regular UNM course schedule.

UNM online courses are not open-ended and have set start and end dates. Most follow 8- and 16-week formats with learning activities scheduled on a weekly basis. All UNM admission and registration deadlines, policies, and procedures apply to students who participate in online courses. Online courses appear on your transcript in the same way as campus-based courses.
