Many students choose Argosy University - Online Programs because the asynchronous learning method allows them to pursue a degree on their own schedule. When students do not need to worry about attending class on a certain day and time, they can more efficiently manage their studies, their jobs, and their family obligations.
In addition to allowing for a greater degree of flexibility, online learning is a truly interactive experience. One way in which Argosy University - Online Programs aims to supplement learning is by utilizing media pieces such as quizzes and video presentations. Whether students choose to study Education, Psychology, Business or Health Sciences, they can benefit from using these tools in class.
One such example, presented to Industrial Organizational Psychology students in IO6500: Employee Selection, Placement & Classification walks the student through the hiring process for an Office Manager position in a company called Lonestar Landscaping. After reviewing the job requirements, the student is introduced to three candidates with varying qualifications. They are tasked to review each candidate’s assessment test, résumé and job interview.
Another media piece, for students in the Master of Business Administration course B6889: Fraud Examination: Theories and Methods, tasks students with identifying the appropriate person or people to interview in a fraud examination, as well as selecting the most revealing questions to ask. Upon completion of the exercise, the student is awarded an overall score and feedback on the selected questions.
These are just examples of the types of media to which a student at Argosy University – Online Programs will be exposed.
