What is remote learning?

Many Eastern College students are pursuing a new career by continuing their education through remote learning.* Instructors at Eastern College provide lessons; assign homework; and facilitate group discussions, presentations, and other classroom activities through video conferencing and other remote channels. The main goal is to ensure students receive the education needed to graduate into their new careers while delivering a learning option that gives you additional flexibility and convenience.

What does remote learning look like?

  • instructor-led classes
  • follow the same schedule with classes held at the same time
  • class discussions and debates continue through video
  • same in-class content is reviewed (i.e. presentations, case studies)
  • one-on-one student check-ins with instructors
  • learn new communication skills and technology such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams to better prepare you for future work situations
  • it is not online learning, you are guided through the learning with your instructor and classmates
