All courses in the post-professional program will be taught within the PCOM learning
management system. Courses are structured to provide the same academic materials,
integrity, and structure as any classroom environment. Learners will have access to
a syllabus, course calendar, lecture notes, handouts, recorded/live lectures, collaborative
discussion boards with peers, course assignments and timed exams. Learners will submit
all authored work through a digital dropbox, and exams are taken online through timed
assessments that have a variety of instructor controls to verify academic integrity.
Learners are required to conform to an honor code by which they agree not to cheat,
collaborate or surf internet sites for answers. Many instructors use browser lockdowns
to ensure academic integrity by locking the exams for users who click outside of the
testing environment; hence, resulting in a failing grade.
