HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

Focused on Your Success

The online class consists of the book work.  The hands-on part of the class consists of one day a week at the school.  

Doing the book work online saves you time and money while offering convenience and flexibility to learn around your life.


Convenience and Flexibility:

  1. Schedule Flexibility: Students can access their course at any time, from anywhere they have internet access in most cases. This means that parents, working students, and professionals on the move have the option of attending classes no matter their work schedule. Students only need a computer and Internet access to take online classes.

  2. Ease of accessibility: Course can be accessible for students when they need it. Students can review lectures, discussions, explanations, and comments. Students can also share notes with each other to help facilitate community learning.

  3. Students control study time: On-campus courses are typically scheduled in a more rigid format. Night classes may last for nearly three hours. One of the benefits of online education is that students may not have to sit for long periods of time. Lessons can be paused when needed, and notes read at will.  


Student Enrichment

  1. Chance for interaction: Online courses may be less intimidating than the brick-and-mortar classroom setting and could help to increase student interaction. By allowing everyone to have a voice, ideas can be shared, and more knowledge can be gained. Students can also think longer about what they want to say and add their comments when ready. In a traditional classroom, the conversation could have moved past the point where the student may be willing to comment.

  2. Online communications: Instructors can be more approachable in the online setting. Students may feel more comfortable talking openly with their teachers through online chats, emails, and newsgroup discussions rather than face-to-face. Online correspondence also cuts out having to wait for office hours that may not be convenient for either party.

  3. Time to absorb material: Positive results are reported for students enrolled in online classes, according to a study by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE): "on average, students in online learning conditions performed modestly better than those receiving face-to-face instruction." Using over 1,000 empirical studies, the DOE found that time was the additive that helped students perform better. The report noted benefits in studies in which online learners spent more time on task than students in the face-to-face classroom.

Our classes are very popular with our students, and have helped them grow and evolve outside the classroom. To hear more about our benefits, get in touch today to speak with one of our team members.

Nothing makes us more proud than watching our students thrive and achieve their goals. 

Cost-effective choices

  1. Money saving option: Students may be able to save money by not having to physically attend classes. Online courses may help individuals cut down or eliminate costs of transportation, babysitting, and other expenses incurred by attending classes in a traditional setting.
