Course Format

Accelerated Format

DAE courses are offered in an accelerated format. Each course is 8 weeks in length. Students enrolled in nine credit hours per semester are considered full-time.

Multiple Locations

The division currently provides courses on the main campus, off campus, online and at exclusive course locations and degree sites.

Online Classroom

We use Moodle as our online classroom. You choose the time that fits your schedule to "enter" the Moodle classroom and work at your convenience.


Online Micro-Lectures

The weekly assignments of the online Moodle classroom include 10-15 minute micro lectures allowing you to enjoy the lectures in the time you have available.

Video-Based Discussions

Once a week you will join your instructor and students in your class for an online, video-based discussion to explore your individual work with the rest of the students in your course.
