Methods of Learning
INTEGRATED LEARNING™ SYSTEM (ILS)
Course materials and instructions provide an all encompassing learning experience using multi-sensory learning styles and preferences through student workbooks, media presentations, and hands-on exercises. These learning styles are supported by an on-site qualified college facilitator. This learning style also applies to Academy of Learning College’s Online ILS Hybrid courses.
Academy of Learning College has turned the page by applying technology in a whole new style of learning. Students will have the opportunity of learning and participating in a virtual classroom. Courseware and lessons are delivered utilizing textbooks, software, and online digital media, in addition to a live lecture every day. With the click of a button, students enter the Virtual Classroom where their Instructor is waiting to deliver a live lesson and answer questions in real time.
Lesson content is delivered to students in a live lecture format. These courses follow the traditional delivery of content by an instructor, based on daily standardized lesson plans that consist of approved curriculum. When using this method of delivery, the instructor presents lessons on the course topics; administers quizzes, tests, assignments, and exams; monitors student progress and attendance; and addresses students’ questions, issues, and concerns.
ONLINE LEARNING SUPPORTED BY A QUALIFIED COLLEGE FACILITATOR OR ONLINE INSTRUCTOR
Students complete course materials presented within a comprehensive online system. This system incorporates online lectures that combine with access to instructional materials, simulated labs, exercises, as well as quizzes, review questions, or pre- and post-tests. In this delivery method, students are supported by a qualified online instructor or an on-site qualified college facilitator.
LEARNING SUPPORTED BY A QUALIFIED OFF-SITE INSTRUCTOR
Students are provided with course content that includes all of the required courseware, and are supported by a live technical instructor during regular business hours. Students have access to an instructor via e-mail outside of regular business hours.
