Rockwood Online provides students with virtual learning opportunities. Because taking online courses is different from taking courses in a traditional face-to-face classroom, it’s good for students to know what courses will be like and what kind of commitment they’ll need to be successful. Research shows that students who are well prepared and well supported for this new experience do better in their classes.​​​​​
