Off-Campus Courses to Be Offered This Fall

To satisfy the increasing interest of nontraditional (i.e., off-campus) students who want to take University of Illinois crops-focused courses, we will offer three courses via the Internet during the fall 2007 semester: CPSC 440--Applied Statistical Methods I, HORT 466--Growth and Development of Horticulture Plants, and CPSC 499--Plant Breeding and Chromosomes. All of these courses will be delivered using the software Elluminate and are available to interested students everywhere, including graduate students in the Crop Sciences off-campus master's program, nondegree students, and certified crop advisers (CCAs). For all courses, students will be required to have a working microphone to use during discussion online. High-speed Internet connection is highly recommended to participate effectively in the online courses. Instructions for downloading Elluminate are provided to all students who sign up for one or more of the courses. More specific information about each course follows:
