Self-Paced Online Courses (SPOC)
Our entire Foundation and Intermediate curricula offer a gradual path of study and are available as self-paced, online courses. These are complete versions of courses that were previously taught by Nitartha faculty.
You can take these classes online in the comfort of your own home through streaming video or downloadable audio. By taking advantage of these self-paced online courses, you can progress through the Nitartha Institute curriculum on a flexible time schedule that suits your circumstances.
The courses also include study questions as well as the option to contact a distance learning advisor with questions to deepen and clarify your understanding.
Each one concludes with an exam, which is aimed at helping you to check your understanding of the material studied. These exams are required for students who would like to request a Nitartha completion certificate, for those seeking academic credit at other institutions, or for those wishing to enter the teacher-in-training program.
We recommend that you take the courses in sequence, beginning with the Foundation curriculum. It is particularly important to begin with the Foundation course Mind and Its World I: Valid Cognition and its companion course Clear Thinking before proceeding through the rest of the Foundation curriculum.
Students are given 9 months to complete self-paced online courses.
