We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of online continuing education. We know that many of today’s continuing education students need flexibility, so we created a new learning modality to fit into their busy lives.
This summer, we’re adding a Self-Paced Tutorial (SPT) counterpart to many courses in our Fundamentals catalog. Students can select the SPT option in lieu of the traditional instructor-led method and complete the course on their own schedule.
We also created some brand-new courses that will use the Self-Paced Tutorial module exclusively, so be sure to keep an eye out for those!
What makes the Self-Paced Tutorial option different?
The content of the Fundamentals course and its STP counterpart are the same, but the new STP version offers greater flexibility to your students. Here is how:
|Self-Paced Tutorial||Instructor-Led Course|
This looks familiar, is this a new option?
Yes and no. We piloted the SPT option for a handful of Fundamentals courses, all of which are currently open for enrollment:
Feedback for the initial SPT rollout was overwhelmingly positive, so we will extend this option to 120 more courses in three phases and release 75 standalone SPT-only courses.
What does this mean for me?
When a SPT option is available, it will be listed with “Self-Paced Tutorial” in the course title. You can choose to include or exclude the SPT option from your Fundamentals catalog. However, if you choose to offer only the one learning method, your school may not populate in the search results since users will only see schools that offer both modalities.
Stay tuned! We will announce more SPT courses in the coming weeks, as well as demonstrations, best practices, and suggested pricing.
