UMT Online Education uses advanced communication technologies to enable students
to learn from the comfort of their home, office, or anywhere else in the world where they can access
Online students are not constrained by a semester schedule and are encouraged to enroll in courses whenever
they are ready on a year-around basis, unless students enroll in a term-based program (such as FSA,
J-1, F-1 students, etc.).
UMT delivers courses over the Internet using text, lecture notes, online discussions, video streaming,
and other multimedia elements. The online materials are supplemented by books, readings, and other materials
that mirror traditional classroom courses.
Online course material is divided into manageable units that allow students to complete course sections
quickly. They are able to measure their progress and focus on areas where they need assistance.
Students communicate with their instructors and fellow students via email, discussion boards, internet
conferencing, and other media. Instructors closely monitor students' work, providing individualized
UMT Online Learning frees students from the confines of the traditional classroom while providing an
educational experience customized for today.
Students entering UMT's Online Education Program should be computer literate. They should have basic
skills in using the World Wide Web, sending and receiving email, and word processing. Students should
have a general familiarity with the computer(s) they use, know how to install software (if necessary),
and be able to troubleshoot basic computer problems. Students may need other computers skills (such
as using spreadsheets) for specific courses.
The UMT systems do not conflict with the accessibility functions built into students' computers.
Although UMT students can use any device to access materials, UMT recommends the current versions of
Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office to provide robust accessibility features for those who need them.
Communicating with Faculty
Email is the primary means of communication. Students may contact UMT faculty by including the course
ID in the subject line of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
UMT strives to respond to student inquiries and submitted assignments as quickly as possible. When making
inquiries, it is important for the student to be specific. Turnaround for standard questions is typically
quick. Questions dealing with unique issues often entail longer response times because they may entail
substantial investigation by UMT faculty or staff.
UMT utilizes various web-based systems to support student needs. Those systems all use secure interfaces
(https) and any device that supports the current security protocols and software requirements can be
used by students. All courses require a broadband Internet connection. Some courses require:
It is the student's responsibility to obtain any programs required for the courses, unless otherwise
