The big question! All of our courses are formatted in a similar manner, although each course is unique in content
You can review course syllabi on our website under each individual course description. No matter which format you choose, you will always find our courses to be thought provoking and practical
We write our courses to accommodate folks whatever their professional role in education may be. In addition, we can provide alternative activities for people who do not currently have access to students. Should you find an application option that requires student input, in most circumstances, we welcome you to draw on previous classroom experience. We are always happy to work with you to insure the work you are doing is applicable to your career and still meets course requirements, so we love to hear about your ideas for modification, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some courses are a better fit than others if you are not a classroom teacher, we have a list of fantastic courses that we recommend frequently for guidance counselors, nurses, social workers, speech-language pathologists, and other non-teaching education professionals.
Our courses carry graduate credit through our Academic Partners, and we are accountable for ensuring high levels of quality and rigor. Per standard practice in the field, each 3-credit course explores the equivalent of 45 hours of content. Because everyone learns differently, some folks tend to take less time, some take more time. Because the courses are self-paced, only you can tell how long the course will truly take, and if you are able to complete it in a particular time frame, considering your other work, home, and life responsibilities. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Learners Edge grants a two week automatic extension for each session. You do not need to request or ask for this two week grace period, your coursework will be processed when it is received.
If you do not complete your coursework within the session enrolled, you will have a short, additional, timeframe to complete coursework. After this timeframe, you will be dropped from the course.
Reinstatement into the course may be possible, please contact us. The reinstatement fee is $150. If you are completing an online course the work submitted from the original session will be lost, please save all work in a word document.
