Important to the non-digital native is that the initial course includes lessons in navigating the online environment. Students are expected to read about 100 pages, take a short online quiz, engage in online discussions with classmates and their instructor, and complete a written assignment each week. The ability to write well is fundamental to any professional field. That is why the BLS program requires students to produce a substantial amount of academic writing in each course. Graduates will have a large portfolio of written work which can be used to demonstrate learning outcomes and abilities.
