Overview of Online Learning Programs

In an online bachelor's degree completion program in dental hygiene, students often take courses in asynchronous format, which allows them to complete studies at their pace. Students typically access course content through a virtual instructional platform, such as Blackboard. Through this site, they can participate in discussion forums, complete quizzes and exams, submit assignments and send e-mails.
