Virtual students can attend class online in real-time by using the E2C format, which is now available for students completing the 36 semester hour graduate program. E2C provides students with an online option to attend class and connect with fellow students and faculty at the University. E2C students attend at the same day/time as classroom learners, but can participate from any location.
“Students get the same conversation and instruction that face-to-face classroom learners experience while enjoying the benefits and convenience of attending virtually. Beyond the ability to speak and listen in real-time, Harrisburg University uses Adobe Connect's functionality to create a virtual environment that mirrors key classroom functions and expands upon others,” says Andy Petroski, director of the LTMS program at Harrisburg University.
The LTMS program is an innovative, applied learning technologies program that provides students with immediate career benefits while preparing them for projected industry needs. The LTMS program is a part-time or full-time 36 semester hour program that provides students with leading edge approaches and skills to help them apply existing and emerging learning technologies in a variety of learning environments. The graduate program provides students with the knowledge and skills to:
Analyze performance improvement opportunities to determine appropriate solutions.
Create engaging learning solutions to improve performance.
Evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of learning solutions.
Play a role as a thought leader in the integration of technology to improve learning.
