We use several online programs to enhance our blended learning coursework. Once you have been accepted into the course our facilitators will add you to each of the following programs:
- Moodle Workspace– This is our Learning Management System and the home for the program content. Login here to see the course syllabus, handouts, resources, turn-in assignments and join the live classes.
