How eLearning Works

Massachusetts Library members take courses online and have access to professors, lectures, exams, and classmates using a standard computer connected to the Internet. Interaction among classmates and instructors is done through email and web-based threaded discussions and students can take classes when and where they want; all materials are available online 24/7.
