How it Works

Learning Online at UALR

UALR offers more than 300 courses online each semester. The online courses are accessed through Blackboard and taught by the same award-winning faculty who teach face-to-face courses on campus. Through these online courses, UALR students have the opportunity to pursue a high-quality college education anytime and anywhere.

Planning and Organization

Blackboard offers several tools that help students stay on track and organized. The calendar tool in Blackboard is a great way to keep everything organized and keep students on top of their coursework. UALR also uses Google

System Requirements

Students must have predictable, regular access to and control of a computer as your instructor assignment dates may vary. You may also be required to download files or software to complete class work. If your computer is publicly used or is loaned to you and you cannot download files or software, you will need to discuss your circumstances with your instructor.

Time Expectations

Online learning is just as intensive as learning face-to-face, and time to do the work needs to be scheduled and planned for, just as if one were attending face-to-face classes.

Online Resources

Students who take courses online have access to the Ottenheimer Library.  Through their website, students can take advantage of different research databases, scholarly journals, e-books and other research materials.  Students can search the library database through the easy search box on the homepage of their website.
