Delivering Engaging, Convenient, Cost-Effective Learning Experiences

Online options are a cost-effective way to facilitate learning and support professional development: Graduate School USA offers live, self-paced, and blended (hybrid) online products and learning options for both organizations and individuals.

  • Live These dynamic courses are webcast live from our studio using Adobe® Connect™, Desire2Learn (D2L), or Collaborate™.
  • Self-Paced Self-paced courses are housed in our Learning Management System, Desire2Learn. Students can access these online courses anytime from anywhere (locally, nationally, and globally) by logging on from a home or work computer or a mobile device.
  • Blended (synchronous and asynchronous) This type of course has both live and self-paced components, so there are two classrooms: the live class webcast from our studio or conducted in the face-to-face classroom and the self-paced classroom in Desire2Learn, which students can access before and after the live class(es).

We can flexibly support a variety of training needs using our platforms or yours. The expertise of our Distance Education (DE) support team encompasses a full range of learning architecture, instructional design, course facilitation, multimedia design, and project management capabilities.
