Video on Demand Courses
If you are not able to join a class online during the day via live-stream, then later in the day or even later in the week you could watch the class on Horizon’s Video Centre through Video on Demand (VOD). In comparison to Online Video courses (more info below), VOD courses allow you to interact with the class and professor that you are watching on video, because you are following the same general schedule as the on-campus course. Our course schedules indicate those courses that are accessible by VOD.
NOTE: The deadline to register for VOD courses is three weeks prior to the start of the course. VOD is available for most (not all) courses that are running on-campus and as live-stream video.
How does it work?
Lectures are captured each day for the on-campus course, edited, and uploaded to our video site. VOD students will have assignment due dates similar to in-class students and are required to watch and engage with all of the recordings within a certain time-frame each day or week.
MODULE COURSES: Including the module week, each week for five weeks, VOD students are required to watch and engage with the recording from one full day of the module.
In order to pass the course, VOD students must submit VOD weekly submissions. The purpose of these submissions is to demonstrate thoughtful engagement with the class material.
For every week of the course, by 11:59pm each Monday, as a VOD student you will submit to the class discussion board
[for example] a report (300 written words or 2-3 minute audio or video) that:
1) affirms you have watched the required recording for the last seven days;
2) summarizes one thing you learned that week that will help you reach the course learning outcomes; and
3) explains at least one question you had after watching the class recording.
Alternatively, the student will meet with the professor live on Zoom on Monday at 3pm.
Each professor may provide a variety of different options for what these submissions could look like.
