University of Phoenix Online Campus
A Day at the Online Campus
During your day at the University of Phoenix online campus, you don’t have the opportunity to sit in the Quad and watch fellow students scurry from class to class, or listen to the guy on the soap box with all the answers.
But then, you don’t have time for such leisurely activities because your college experience is wrapped around your day at work. So in the morning, before heading off to the job, check your email to see if your professor has responded to your questions about your upcoming paper. You find a comment from a fellow student on an earlier paper that you’ve circulated, asking about your sources. A quick reply and you’re off to work.
During your lunch break at work, you jot down the outline for your paper and begin to think about how you’ll flesh it out. For one section that needs some supporting documentation, you decide to see what the school library has on hand. All that requires is accessing the school database and searching the library for an article to support your contention. You find two: one with some statistics that you can quote and another with projections about future trends.
Copying the relevant pages from your library sources, you paste them into a working file for this class. The argument you want to posit in this paper is taking shape, but you’d like to bounce it off some colleagues. You’ll have that opportunity tonight in a student forum that assembles online in a virtual classroom.
The other thing you need to do tonight is finish up your reading for the student workshop that begins tomorrow. They’re three days of intense interaction, but since it’s on topic for your major you’ve decided to do it now rather than two weeks from now, when inventory starts at work.
