eCore® Tuition Reduction!

by Kathy Sundin on April 28, 2014 in eCore, The Center for eLearning

Beginning in the Fall, 2014 semester eCore® tuition will be dropping from $189 to $169 per credit hour. The tuition rate for Georgia and non-resident students is the same. And, it is the first time since its debut in 1999 that tuition has been reduced.

eCore® is short for electronic core-curriculum and allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to complete their first two years of their collegiate careers in an online environment. eCore® courses are taught entirely online, except for the occasional proctored exam. eCore® courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the USG. For more information on eCore® please visit the eCore® website.

Visit the Atlanta Journal-Constitution article for more information on the tuition reduction.

What is GAAD?

GAAD is Global Accessibility Awareness Day

On Thursday, May 15, 2014 you are invited to participate in Global Accessibility Awareness Day. The purpose of the day is to get people talking, thinking and learning about website accessibility and people with disabilities.

For an hour we invite you to experience web accessibility firsthand. How?

  • Turn off your computer speakers and try to access web-based video;
  • Turn off your monitor and try to access websites by hearing rather than sight;
  • Unplug your mouse and try to navigate websites with only your keyboard;
  • Remove semantic structure and try to understand website content.

Did you need help?

If you are unable to complete these tasks, your websites or web-based content may not be accessible for all audiences. To learn more about how to create accessible web content, please visit the Web Accessibility Group (WAG) website at wag.uga.edu.

For more information please contact the Access Office at PH: 229-245-2498, TTY: 229-219-1348, VP: 229-375-5871

Thank you for participating in Global Accessibility Awareness Day!
