Benefits of Online Learning
Lawrence Tech Online is based on the best practices for online learning developed by the North Central Association, the Sloan Consortium, and other professional organizations dedicated to online learning. LTU’s online courses utilize the latest technology to create highly interactive, collaborative, and engaging lectures and discussions. Expert faculty connect with students through the Blackboard Technology course management system, which includes discussion forums, on-demand lecture presentations, streaming video, group collaboration software, and other integrated software appropriate to individual classes.
The primary reason students choose online courses from LTU is that they can get the same exceptional education that campus students receive, but with a greater degree of flexibility. Here’s why it could work for you:
- Online courses make it easier for students to balance time between coursework and their personal or professional schedules. You can decide when it’s the right time to “attend” class no matter where you are. You’ll have access to your “classroom” from anywhere, anytime (as long as you have access to the internet).
- Course material is often delivered in several different formats, so you can choose to learn the content in the manner that best suits you; lectures, reading, interactive activities, and more. Lawrence Tech is currently using Blackboard Learn™ technology for online classes which is integrated with multimedia and synchronous technologies to ensure online students receive the same course content, interaction and knowledge as the campus students.
- Many online students are often surprised by the amount of student interaction in each course, but when you stop and think about it, that makes perfect sense. Everyone has to participate in the online classroom discussions, not just the most talkative. It’s also less intimidating to contribute online, since there is a sense of anonymity.
- LTU’s online professors are accessible through many online channels including discussion boards, chat rooms, email, and sometimes instant messenger. You don’t have to worry about if your questions will be answered – most responses will come in less than 24 hours.
