Do you have to log in daily for the online courses?

No.  All work is asynchronous and there are not any specific times you must log on.

How asynchronous is it?

It is completely asynchronous.  There will be work due each day, but it can be done at your convenience.  You can also work ahead and complete the course as quickly as you want.

 **Please note for PE workouts will need to be completed 5 of a 7 day period and internet access is required.

What is the daily/weekly time commitment?  Can it be done in 1 hour a day or more like 4?

The time it takes each student to complete the course work depends heavily on the student.  Budgeting 2 hours a day would likely be sufficient for most.  

What if my student is going to be out of town for part of the class?

It is not a problem for a student to be away for camp or on vacation for a small part of the course.  Remember though, course work is due each day, so students will need to work ahead or make other arrangements with the instructor in advance.  

Do I need internet access?

Yes.  Work cannot be completed without internet access.

Do I need a computer?

Yes, you need a computer or a chromebook.  For PE classes, you also need a smartphone or smartwatch.

Can I take multiple courses at the same time?

No, you may only take one course during each session.
