eCore is a cooperative arrangement among institutions within the University System of Georgia (USG) to offer online general education courses. The goal of eCore courses is to make higher education more accessible within our state.
eCore courses offer students the opportunity to complete undergraduate requirements in the General Education Core Curriculum Areas A-E completely online. eCore courses are transferable within the USG as well as to most accredited colleges and universities.
eCore Courses Format
eCore courses are offered in a fully online format on the Brightspace by D2L platform. Each course requires either one proctored experience or a major project of significance. eCore courses are designed, developed, taught, and supported by faculty and staff from multiple institutions in the USG, including Kennesaw State University.
Several items to note:
- eCore follows a separate calendar that may or may not coincide with the Kennesaw State University academic calendar.
- Courses are asynchronous, meaning students can log in at any time of day to access the courses. However, there is still a syllabus and schedule to follow for each course.
- All eCore students have access to online tutoring.
*Note: This course is granted elective credit at KSU, it does not count towards any General Education Core Curriculum requirements.
