Crossroads Online provides students with an opportunity to take a few classes online or fully complete a Bachelor of Science degree in all four majors. Self-paced learning is education which the learner studies a subject at one’s own pace and has limited professor contact hours. At CBC, self-paced learning is monitored in 8-week modules at the beginning of each month. A course extension is granted by the grading professor. Students complete online reflections, projects, and reading assignments through Atheneo and consortium of schools. The student works through each lesson and learning exercises. There is no examination for the courses in the self- paced option. Some courses may have video enhancement where students can watch or hear short lectures of a previously live session. Other professors may post Vimeo, YouTube, and other similar online videos to stimulate thinking about the subject.
