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, we check your progress weekly to keep you on track and we’ll reach out to you by email or even by phone if you fall behind!
