Online Learning @BULLIS courses are fully online, credit-bearing courses that are housed in the Bullis Haiku learning management system. These online courses are facilitated by qualified Bullis School instructors. Students may participate from any location that has adequate connectivity. Online Learning @BULLIS teachers use technology to lead instruction; students are responsible for all assignments and assessments—just like Bullis traditional courses. Online Learning @BULLIS courses are not easier than traditional courses; they are just more flexible.
Online Learning @BULLIS courses are not self-directed; all online courses are facilitated by qualified teachers.
The Online Learning @BULLIS program is fully accredited; transcripts are issued upon course completion.
While there is some flexibility for pacing within an Online Learning @BULLIS course, the online courses in this program are not considered ‘self-paced.’ The Online Learning @BULLIS courses are highly interactive with student-student and student-teacher interaction.
Online Learning @BULLIS courses allow students more flexibility than traditional, face-to-face courses; however, timelines and assignment due dates are established by the course instructor.
Online Learning @BULLIS course tests may require a proctor. Specific instructions regarding assessments will be addressed by the course instructor.
While Online Learning @BULLIS students are strongly supported by their instructors, students need to be able to stay on task, meet deadlines, and be self-motivated. For additional information, visit the section on tips for a successful online learner.
