Carey Online Course Information

Our online courses contain both synchronous and asynchronous components. Synchronous sessions are those in which the entire class is online at the same time. Asynchronous components such as assignments can be completed at the student's own pace (but within due dates). To keep up with the course requirements, students will need to log into the course website several times each week.

Synchronous Online Sessions

Each online course will have at least three synchronous online sessions. These sessions allow students to interact with each other as well as the course instructor. Each session is different, and while they are not always required, the course syllabus and instructor will let students know whether they need to attend or will need to submit an alternate assignment if they cannot attend a session.

Module Structure

The online program incorporates a chronologically based module format. Each module (unless noted otherwise) will contain every reading/course media, and assignment that is due each week. The module/week starts on Monday, 12:01am and ends on Sunday 11:59pm. All times and due dates contained within the online program are Eastern Time unless noted otherwise.

Netiquette

The Carey Business School expects students to maintain a learning community and environment that is respectful, fair, and responsible, promotes the free exchange and sharing of ideas, and fosters intellectual inquiry. Students will be held to the highest standards for language and content in emails and discussion interaction (including attachments), and we expect the same language to be used online that you would use in the classroom.

Netiquette is a set of guidelines that outline best practices for communicating and corresponding online. Students should apply these guidelines when participating in discussion forums and when sending emails. While the rules of netiquette can and will change over time, some simple rules are generally agreed upon. The core rules of netiquette is an excerpt from the book netiquette by Virginia shea and details the core rules for communicating online, including guidelines on tone, content, and participation.

Communication Policy

Throughout the program, students will develop critical professional business skills, including interpersonal and communication skills. Students will become active members in the academic and business world by sharing and learning from each other. Some of the time this exchange will happen in the online discussion forum and other times students will connect with their peers and instructors during synchronous online meetings.

The discussion forum is one of the ways students will communicate and share ideas with peers and instructors during their courses. When including information and ideas from external sources, students must cite and reference appropriately according to the current edition of the APA manual.

Academic Excellence and Integrity

The Carey community believes that honesty, integrity, and community responsibility are qualities inherent in an exemplary citizen. The objective of the Carey Business School honor code is to create an environment of trust and respect among all members of the academic community while the qualities associated with success are developed in students.

In order to maintain the highest level of academic integrity, Carey Business School is implementing a variety of tools and software including but not limited to:

  • Proctored exams: when taking exams, students may be proctored using a remote proctoring software application.
  • Visibility via webcam: during synchronous online sessions, students should be visible to the facilitator via their webcam unless otherwise stated by the facilitator.
  • Turnitin: students will submit completed assignment through the canvas assignment tool, which uses Turnitin to determine an originality score for the completed assignment based on previously submitted documents, as well as other online databases.
