How Does eCore Work?

Each online UWG eCore class has a syllabus and schedule to follow. Just as in a class taught on campus, instructors specify the content to be covered; dates for exams and quizzes, individual and group assignments and other activities that you must complete by a specified date.

Key point: These classes are not like independent study or self-paced courses where you work by yourself or at your own pace. UWG eCore courses follow a traditional academic semester calendar; therefore, you cannot start and stop at any time. You are part of a class and your classmates will count on you to be an active contributor. Your class will likely consist of students located throughout Georgia, in other states and possibly from other countries. Your active participation takes place through the discussion area within your course.

Each course requires at least one proctored exam, but no more than two. You must identify a testing center near your home or work (can be UWG's testing center—or another place near you). Each semester you must arrange an appointment to take your midterm and/or final exams at the testing center. Exam information and sign up instructions will be made available to you during your course.
