Arkansas State University Radiologic and Imaging Sciences programs do not offer full degrees or professional clinical courses via online Internet web resources. However, we do offer some courses via the university Blackboard (trademark software) online Internet web services.
These courses vary in design; some are taken completely online and do not require any on-campus attendance, others require presentations or examinations on-campus, while still others meet regularly on-campus.
All online Internet web courses taken via the university Blackboard web site qualify for ASU-Jonesboro main campus residency course credit.
If you are a current ASU student, you may access Web for Students to search the current course schedules for web courses. If you are not a current ASU student, please contact us at the contacts given at the bottom of this page to find out what the possibilities are for you.
GETTING ONLINE ACCESS INSTRUCTIONS If you have successfully registered for one of our Blackboard online Internet web courses before the first day of class, you will be contacted by the course professor with instructions on how to gain online access. The exact procedure varies from one professor to another. If you register for the course after the first day of class, you are expected to contact the professor.
EXPECTATIONS WITH ONLINE COURSES You should expect your online Internet web course experience to be somewhat different from traditional classroom, laboratory, or clinical courses. The main difference is that the student must be self-motivated to do the course work. Without regular class meetings, keeping up can become a serious problem. We strongly suggest that you quickly become familiar with ALL the online options available through the university Blackboard software website and be prepared to use ANY or ALL options (this includes announcements, assignments, communication, discussion boards, external links for downloading documents, lecture slides, surfing to other websites, etc.). Finally, most online courses expect you to sign on at least once per week, although some professors will give more frequent and some will give less frequent assignments.
GETTING ONLINE You may get to your online Internet web course via any computer that can access the Internet. The first time you sign on, you must start at http://learnonline.astate.edu/bbRegisInfo.htm After you have successfully signed onto your course via Blackboard, you may use the main Blackboard website to do your course work at http://blackboard6.astate.edu/ . This website is quickly available through the "Go to" box on both the RadSci home page and the main ASU home page.
We want your online Internet web course experience to be a good one. We believe we are using one of the best online software packages in Blackboard. We hope you agree. If you should encounter any problems online, please limit your frustration to 15-20 minutes, then try to get help from your professor.
