Our students report that they spend on average 20 hours per week, per course, contributing to class discussions, completing assigned readings, and working on assignments. Many online courses are asynchronous, meaning you can log in at any time, from anywhere—as long as you follow the weekly schedule, including specific login requirements.
To help get you started, we offer a self-paced Student Readiness Orientation (SRO) that will introduce you to Walden's online learning environment, Blackboard.

This and other resources are available to you as a Walden student through the myWalden student portal.
Then you can get started right from your online student portal, myWalden. Access everything you need to succeed in your online courses, including the Walden Library and the Center for Research Quality, conveniently in one location.
