Online Education

Our philosophy of education carries over into the way we approach our Online Education program. Online Education at SES involves the use of various tools, as directed by the faculty member, to provide the highest quality education for students who may never step foot on campus. We offer a unique online educational philosophy and in so doing, strive to be innovators in the field of online education.

Two Forms of Online Education

Traditional Asynchronous

Our traditional asynchronous courses utilize prerecorded lectures that students may watch on their own time. The course requirements more or less mirror the on-campus equivalent of the course, but do not require the student to participate in live lectures or discussions as normal on-campus courses do. This format provides increased flexibility for those with busy schedules.

Live-Streaming

The purpose of live-stream courses is to mirror the on-campus experience, but at a distance. Students who desire to have classroom interaction and discussion but cannot attend courses on campus may utilize this option as it allows the student to participate in the lectures in real time from their computer.

Every certificate, bachelor’s, and master’s degree at SES can be completed off campus. In addition, many doctoral level courses also have online options using a combination of these forms.

 

Both forms utilize Moodle, an easy-to-use online learning system, for course content delivery.
