Achieve your goals, wherever you are!
Don't let the snowy weather keep you from learning.
Online learning provides the flexibility to learn by removing the limits of time and space. Learn on your own schedule and study during the times of the day when you are at your most productive.
As the demand for high-quality online courses and programs increases, our goal at Western Continuing Studies is to ensure that our courses in the virtual classroom are as rich and meaningful as the traditional face-to-face model.
What is online learning?
Online learning, also referred to as eLearning, offers new and exciting ways for Western Continuing Studies to deliver high-quality learning experiences beyond the walls of a traditional classroom. Just like face-to-face learning, eLearning provides opportunities for you to interact with your instructor, peers, and with course content, all through a variety of learning activities. Western's learning management system, OWL, provides a user-friendly platform with plenty of tools to keep you engaged and active in the online classroom.
One of the key advantages reported by online learners is the ability to plan your studies according to your personal schedule. We know that adult learners, just like you, lead busy lives. Our online courses provide you with the flexibility to learn while still attending to work, family, and social commitments. Just a few of the other benefits to eLearning include opportunities to use technology in new ways leading to the acquisition of new skills; resources are available 24 hours a day, both within the virtual classroom and beyond; and, you are provided the chance to hone teamwork and collaboration skills.
