Ancilla also offers online courses and online materials to support face-to-face courses.  Ancilla has partnered with The LearningHouse to deliver course offerings using the Moodle course management system.

While online learning includes a variety of approaches, typical coursework will include readings (online and text-based), learning activities, multimedia productions, online chats/discussions (synchronous and asynchronous), online group collaboration and performance-based assessment.

Using the Internet, students are able to access their courses from home, office, or local libraries using a personal computer, Internet connection and a web browser. When you take an Ancilla Online course, you will use your own unique user ID and password to access your courses.

Moodle allows us to offer you online courses in a stable and user-friendly environment. For your convenience, this portal is available at any time from any computer for easy access to your online courses. In addition, the help desk is available 24/7 in case you are in need of any assistance.

Fully online courses

Online courses do not physically meet on campus. If you take online courses you will use a variety of technology to interact with your instructor, other students and access learning materials and tests online. You will need a modern, fast computer with open access to the Internet. (Some local schools and employers put firewalls and other protections in place that make it difficult to access all of your course materials from those networks.)

Web-assisted courses

Most Ancilla courses offer some online materials and additional tools for students. These courses meet in regular session, using classroom or lab meetings as regular classes, but they also have online activities or information available. Ask your instructor if your course is web-assisted.
