Our program directors and faculty understand that your transition from traditional classroom learning to distance learning – online and blended – can be challenging and rewarding. To support you in the development of the requisite technology and learning skills, AIC provides a free orientation course for distance learners. Your orientation experience will introduce you to the full range of services available to both distance and traditional learners at AIC and expectations for distance learning.
AIC recommends that you have the following technology and skills before beginning distance coursework, though individual instructors may require additional tools or skills.
You can develop in these areas by working in the orientation course and alongside your program director, instructor and IT.
Learning at a distance is very different from attending traditional classes on campus. A number of study skills will help you take advantage of the anytime-anywhere freedom afforded by distance learning.
Complete this survey to help you determine if distance learning is a good fit for you.
You may contact the AIC Help Desk at 413.205.3402 or at ITHelpDesk@aic.edu with any questions about technology requirements for online learning. Your admissions counselor, advisor, and program director can assist with questions you may have about the content and structure of the program.
