(These vary by course, and not all courses include supplemental resource materials.)

The online component is not just printed material transferred into digital form. It gives you an opportunity to interact with the course subject matter in a way that will facilitate your learning. Many of our courses use virtual mentors to walk you through real-life experiences that require you to learn and apply the concepts featured in the course. We develop our courses by teaming up the best content experts with our instructional designers to create a powerful learning experience for you.
