Every year, more than five million students take online classes. If you have clicked on this article, you’re clearly wondering if you, too, have what it takes to begin online schooling. The answer is a resounding “yes!” American National University (ANU) has taken the distance out of distance education through a High-Tech / High-Touch approach to create a highly interactive experience. Our exclusive Global Learn, Global Meet, and Global Teach philosophies, make online education possible for all who are driven to learn.
Global Learn refers to our eLearning approach that provides course offerings at a time and place that help you complete your degree faster. The small class sizes and dedicated, accessible faculty at ANU bring the classroom to your screen. We combine live, interactive video conferencing sessions with your professors and classmates with online learning resources and tools you can use from where and when it suits you, to truly bring our university to you.
Global Meet means that you are assured access to support services from anywhere, whether it be via live video, live chat, phone, email, web portal, or in-person at one of several learning sites. These personalized services include admissions counseling, financial aid planning, student services (scheduling, transcripts, academic records), and career counseling (resume development, interview coaching, job leads).
Under Global Teach, ANU faculty are drawn not only from local communities but are selected from experienced professionals through our national and global networks. Not only does this assure the best instruction, unlimited by the geographical constraints of in-person education, but also that we have a faculty that is representative of the diversity of the student population. Electronic learning resources, including e-books, virtual labs, research libraries, databases, and more, also contribute to this High-Tech / High-Touch learning experience.
The benefits of distance education assure convenience and content variety. Not only can you attend lectures, participate in discussions, and do assignments all at the time and place that work for you, but you are also guaranteed access to a wide variety of programs and courses online. This includes business, healthcare, legal studies, and information technology. At ANU, we offer much more than simply an “online degree,” but rather a holistic educational experience.
