Asynchronous online courses have many advantages over the traditional classroom. Among those advantages are the availability of the instructor, the opportunity to “attend” class from many locations, the flexibility of schedule, and no make-up days due to snow. To provide the required amount of “seat-time” for students, Elite Learning instructors will continue to present class material and require assignment submissions. When some schools are temporarily closed, it is necessary to require a continuation of assigned work even if students are absent from school due to weather or school closures. It is the responsibility of the student to access the class via Internet during this type of absence. Students without Internet access beyond school hours will need to discuss this with their instructor at the beginning of the semester.
