Online Learning FAQs


Asynchronous Self-Paced Learning The individual classes for the Digital Product Creation certificate are self-paced. You can sign in whenever you are able to watch pre-recorded lectures and complete weekly assignments. Weekly login participation is recommended.


  • What are the advantages of the self-paced online class? 

    Convenience and Flexibility: Convenience and flexibility are the most obvious advantages. Students can log into the course throughout the week, on any computer, to view the videos and study during the semester. The weekly assignments must be done on a computer that has V-Stitcher loaded.  The self-paced online courses are all pre-recorded.


    Freedom to travel while you study: Courses can be taken from anywhere you have an internet connection; business trips and vacations no longer mean missed classes.


    Great courses, just like on campus: The online certificate coursework is developed and taught in the same manner as classes that students on campus take and is led by the same faculty.


    You can take courses for credit: Want to obtain a certificate and have it count towards a degree program? Check with your university to ensure they will accept the credits, then enroll at Oklahoma State University to receive this industry-informed certificate. Upon certificate completion, your courses will be transcripted so that you can submit them to your university.


    You will need to enroll at Oklahoma State University through the regular admissions process which requires a $40 application fee. Submit your high school transcripts and all transcripts reflecting college courses, along with ACT test scores (if applicable). Once you receive your acceptance, you are ready to start the following semester. See the table below deadline dates based on the semester you wish to start taking classes.

  • How do the self-paced online courses work?

    Structure: Each course has 6 or more modules to complete. You will have access to videos and corresponding PowerPoints as well as any other assets necessary to complete each module. Once a module has been completed and the assignments and quiz have been submitted, the next module will be made available. Students have flexibility in terms of the schedule in which they complete their studies.


    Schedule: Each course gives the students up to 15 weeks to complete during the fall and spring semesters. However, students can complete each course at a quicker pace if preferred. 


    Time commitment: The time spent working on an online course will vary based on the assignments and each student’s own pace. 


    Relationship building:  Students can communicate with the instructor through private correspondence within the course site or via email. Students can utilize the chat and discussion features within Canvas to communicate issues, ask for advice or get peer critique.


    What about exams?  No exams, only quizzes and assignment submissions. Finish requirements in each section to immediately move on to the next.

  • What do I need to be successful?

    We use Browzwear in our Digital Product Creation courses. Your access to the software will be active as long as you are enrolled in one of the courses as an OSU student. Each course allows a maximum of 15 weeks of Browzwear access. As long as you remain in constant, active enrollment throughout the program, you will have access to the software.

  • When can I start?

    Courses start according to our academic calendar. We have fall, spring and summer semester schedules that all courses follow. However, all courses are offered each semester, so when you complete one course you may immediately enroll in the next course in the sequence.
