Live Online Semester Courses

Our faculty usually teach semester-long courses in person locally, with online live streaming for those who live elsewhere. Due to the pandemic, all of our semester classes are currently offered online. These real-time, semester-long courses offer a wonderful opportunity to learn in a live environment with a teacher present to answer your questions, while in the safety and comfort of your own home. Videos of the classes are recorded and made available on our online campus in case you miss a class or are unable to attend live. All live online classes are held via Zoom. You do not need a Zoom account to attend and we will provide instructions for students who are new to Zoom. Each class 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.
