Conestoga Online brings all of the college’s fully online offerings, including full-time and part-time programs, courses and micro-credentials, into one place.
“Our goal is to increase access to education, skills training and continuous learning opportunities for all students by providing flexible programming options,” said Sandra Schelling, executive dean, School of Workforce Development, Continuing Education & Online Learning. “The site responds to the growing diversity of our learners and is targeted to those who require flexibility to study and complete their education around their schedule and location. More and more, we’re seeing older learners that need to balance work and other responsibilities.”
By providing easier access to skills training, all learners have more options to achieve their goals. Unlike remote learning, which the college launched at the beginning of the pandemic to deliver in-person classes virtually, Conestoga Online offerings are fully asynchronous and do not have scheduled class times. The online delivery method allows students to learn at a time and place that fits their lives and accommodates their schedule and obligations.
“Conestoga Online provides access to relevant learning that will help individuals prepare for the shifts in our job market - and that’s important given the changes we’ve seen in our economy over the last year,” added Schelling. “Our online learners, no matter where they are located, will also be provided with support and access to student services throughout their learning journey, and will work with faculty members with strong academic backgrounds and extensive practical industry experience.”
Conestoga Online currently offers over 60 fully online programs, and more than 1,000 online courses across multiple disciplines. Schelling said the college aims to increase and broaden its full-time online program offerings each term.
