Ryokan College is an innovator in online learning and was one of the first colleges to offer degree programs comprised of live classes via the internet. Every class session is live, with each student participating using a camera and microphone, thereby making the experience feel very much like a real classroom environment. Classes are collaborative/interactive, which means that students and instructor converse to create an active and dynamic online classroom setting in real time. Classes are also synchronous, which requires students to attend class at a specific time according to their program schedule. Additionally, there is an asynchronous component to all programs, called the Message Board, a discussion forum that supports and enhances the classroom learning. Ryokanâ€™s online programs are the closest replication of a real class room experience.
Ryokan’s online programs are NOT correspondence endeavors where the student receives downloads of information in a sterile model of academic learning. Online programs require active participation from class members and faculty.
In the Online program, faculty members are selected both for their expertise as practicing clinicians who enjoy teaching AND for their proficiency in working within the computer environment of the Internet.
Online Schedule For Students
Typically, the online schedule calls for students to attend online at the same time (synchronous) two nights a week in a chat room with classmates and instructor. During the week, students contribute responses or perspectives to the Discussion Board – a site of student and instructor assignment postings.
