As an educational institution, using online courses in your curriculum adds value
ADVANTAGES FOR INSTRUCTORS

- Expands Content - Allows for the introduction of more detailed information and examples in class.
- Expands Reach – Allows students to learn theory outside the classroom on their own time and at their own pace, resulting in greater opportunity for students to learn more and retain more.
