Online Course Tour

We offer courses online that take place during each semester running parallel to our campus courses in Peterborough. Our online courses have all the elements that a campus course does in addition to class sizes capped at approximately 20 students so that interaction with professor and students is both meaningful and effective. Each course is facilitated by an instructor who guides the class through weekly lessons made up of readings, activities and discussions. Each course has a major project and evaluative activities such as quizzes and exams. These courses run during the regular 12 week schedule of each semester.

It is a state of the art online learning management system that provides many technological benefits to learning online. They support many large and small educational institutions across the world. We are pleased to have them host our online courses!
