About Online Learning
The university and college members of Concordia Online Education approach online learning with the same commitment to academic excellence and student development that has been the hallmark of each institution’s more than 100-year commitment to academic achievement.
Online graduate degree programs are built around instructor-to-student and student-to-student interaction and communication provided through our proven, reliable online course system and defined by our cohort-based approach to degree progression.
Online learning can be a great way to earn an advanced degree as you manage your personal and career responsibilities. Our online learning structure allows you to work on challenging course topics and engage with instructors and fellow students through a variety of Internet-based tools and services:
- Audio- and video-based lectures and presentations
- Online/streaming voice conversations
- Discussion boards
- Document downloads
- Online chats
Online Learning Basics
Online course systems are completely web-based; you can access our online system anywhere you connect to the Internet: home, office, coffeehouse, library, or any place you can work comfortably.
If you've never taken an online class, there are some important points to keep in mind:
- Online learning offers you a great deal of independence and schedule flexibility in terms of class review, assignment completion, and other course communications and tasks.
- Online classes are still classes. Do not hesitate to contact your instructors as soon as you need help or have questions. Your instructors are available to help you succeed.
About Cohort Learning
All online students begin their degree progressions in a specific learning group, known as a “cohort.” We strongly believe this unified program-based group approach is the best way to enhance the learning experience of each candidate, and to encourage and support sustained, in-depth discussions related to coursework, relevant academic and professional topics, and networking opportunities.
You will get to know the members of your cohort while exploring discussion topics in each of your courses. Your cohort will be a source of ongoing support and collaboration as you progress through your degree program, and well after graduation.
