What is it like to learn online at SFU Continuing Studies?
Online courses are structured very much like in-class courses. In an in-class course, you are given new information by lecture, readings, discussions and possibly an assignment. In an online course, you are given new content to read, course readings, online research, discussions and assignments or exams in modules. All work, including exams, is completed online within the time frame of the course.
We’ve designed the curriculum of our online courses and programs to meet the scheduling needs of working professionals. You’ll access the courses through Canvas, our learning management system, which is available through the SFU website. Canvas is extremely user-friendly—even if you’ve never studied online before. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection.
