How Do Online Classes Work?
At DeVry University, we strive to make every resource available to both on campus and online learners, whether that means creating a virtual library or providing academic support and advice 12 hours a day. The best way, though, to know if enrolling at DeVry online is right for you is to understand what students experience when they attend online classes everyday.

How Online Classes Work
Online classes at DeVry University are designed from the beginning to give you the tools to succeed, with all the class's information and materials available to you from a week before the class even starts. Every online class is created based on a syllabus and presented online using an ordered, easy-to-follow framework.
Each week's assignments, topics and discussions are contained on a tab specific to the week in which they were assigned. You can access any week from the DeVry University online learning platform. As each online course progresses, you have access to all the notes, instructor lectures and chats you've engaged in up to that point, as well as all the course materials.
One of the most important parts of being successful while taking online courses is actively working with your peers. That's why all of our web-based classes feature robust discussions threads and chat features. Classes may include group projects where students reach out to one another via email and chat to complete group assignments together.
And the dialogue and interaction extends beyond your classmates; Professors are actively involved in online class discussions and available to answer questions through phone and email. Read more about the successful professionals that make up our online faculty.
