Our model of learning allows students to participate from anywhere with an internet connection and can provide flexibility for those who cannot attend traditional in-person classes. Virtual learning can offer students many advantages such as allowing students to work at their own pace and on their own schedule. This can be especially helpful for students who have other commitments or need to balance their learning with other activities.
