Continuing Education Online & Virtual
For your convenience, Northwood Tech Continuing Education offers a wide variety of online and virtual classes. Some classes are offered directly through Northwood Tech, while others are available through our partnering educational vendors.
Online Classes: Terminology
Our virtual classes fall into one of the following categories:
Online Live: Join your classes through the internet live from anywhere. Connect with your instructor and classmates during live classes via the web.
Online: Complete your course totally online. Course content is delivered online, with deadlines, but no set meeting times.
Hybrid: Leverage the best of on site, online, and/or online live instructional formats. Courses are delivered via a combination of modes, based on specific class content.
Online classes provide flexibility and saves time and travel expense. If you have access to a computer with high speed internet, are self-motivated and work well independently, online classes may be a good fit for you.
Classes will offer a variety of topics relating to Microsoft programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook and others). Coursework may range from beginning to more advanced skills; minimum computer skills are required to enroll in any Microsoft class and specific prerequisites will be listed for more advanced programming.
