What Does the Online Classroom Look Like?


We use one centralized platform where you can log into your classroom. There you can get assignments, interact with faculty and peers, reply to message boards, and more.

Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and projects through our online platform, available to access 24/7.
Online courses can start off great, but staying motivated can be a challenge. So, you’ll get regular feedback reports (and emails or phone calls if you fall behind!) to keep you on track.
Because it’s online, there are no long commutes, traffic jams or crowded trains to deal with on the way to class. Study at home after the kids have gone to bed.
Your working schedules are unpredictable so we offer flexible delivery. Slow down, speed up or pause the delivery of the course.
