About online learning:

Online learning is a fun, enjoyable and very productive way to learn. Millions of people are learning online each year. You will engage with and get to know the instructor and other participants. It’s easy, and fun!

For a full listing of courses, visit our course directory.

How the courses work:

It is easy to participate in your LERN online course. After you register, you will be given a web address to access your online classroom. You will use your email address and a password to gain access.

Participate when you want:

You can participate any time of day or evening. The online classroom is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are no live real-time requirements or meetings. You decide when you want to participate. For the best learning, participants should log into the course on 2-3 different days of the week. For best learning, you should make one or more comments at 2-3 different times each day.

What you will do:

• Access the online readings.
• Listen to the audio presentation for the unit and view slides.
• Take a self-quiz to see how much you have learned.
• Engage in written online discussion with your instructor and other participants.

The content (readings, audio lectures, slides) and self quizzes are accessible for the entire course, so you can work ahead, or go back and review again at your convenience.

Discussion:

The discussion for each unit lasts one week. All comments are made in writing and can be made at any time of the day or evening. Your instructor will log into the discussion area at least once a day and answer questions, make comments, and respond to comments by you and the other participants. We encourage you to make 2-3 comments each day to maximize your learning and enjoyment of the course.
