Q. What’s the difference between Online and Live Virtual?
A. Live Virtual means the student is attending a live class but instead of coming into a classroom they are attending from a remote computer. A student attending a live virtual class can participate and interact directly with the instructor. While Online means the student is given all the course materials at once and is allowed to work on the course “on their own time”.
Q. Are online students left completely on their own?
A. Even though an online student is taking the course on their own Ohana still offers an instructor for questions. The instructor and student can even set up some one-on-one time for questions or review.
