Developed using the WebTycho online learning platform, this free, weeklong orientation lets potential students get a feel for what online learning is like while interacting with UMUC faculty, staff, current students and alumni. During UMUC 411, participants can:
- Submit practice assignments
- Participate in forum discussions
- Chat one-on-one with UMUC 411 participants and moderators
UMUC 411 participants engage with faculty, staff (financial aid, library, advising, career services and military departments) and student representatives, and ask any questions they might have about the UMUC experience. "(Participants) can get quick answers to their questions in a comfortable and engaging environment," David-Chung explains. "Students often comment that they got answers to questions they didn't even realize they had."
