ALP & MOE Unique Strengthsnext

You are here

ALP Unique strengths

  1. Acceleration: The accelerated pace of the program places much of the learning responsibility with the student.  Students are expected to spend considerable time each week preparing for class.  Because courses run for only seven weeks, every meeting is important.
  2. Collaborative Cohort Learning: Most non-traditional students are members of two learning communities: their cohort and their learning team.  Even students enrolled in programs that do not use formal learning teams will find that collaboration is a significant part of their learning experience.  We believe that non-traditional students bring with them meaningful life experiences and that collaboration facilitates efficient learning, high student motivation, effective teamwork, and increased self-confidence. Students learn from classmates and help them to learn.
  3. Facilitation:  The role of the instructor is to guide and stimulate the class; some courses will have little formal lecturing.  Students are expected to be actively involved in the classroom learning environment.
  4. Variety of Instructional Formats:  Teaching strategies include: seminars, small groups, experiential learning, simulations, presentations, and brainstorming.  Case studies and research projects are used extensively.  Up-to-date course management software and wireless connectivity on both campuses allows instructors to incorporate online research and sources, virtual experiences, and video conferencing.
  5. Adult Learning: Students are responsible for their own education.  The role of staff and instructors is to facilitate students’ exposure to learning experiences; students are responsible for assimilating the information. The program provides appropriate learning opportunities; students must decide how these opportunities will be used.

MOE Unique Strengths

  1. Acceleration: The accelerated pace of the program meets the needs of today’s online student.  Successful online learners tend to be motivated and organized, thus much of the responsibility for learning has been placed with the student. Students are expected to spend considerable time each week preparing for class.  Because courses run for only seven weeks, learning activities are clearly spelled out as the course begins and it is imperative that students make every effort not to fall behind.
  2. Virtual Classroom Interaction:  Communication among online students has been shown to be key in student success and persistence.  For that reason, MOE classes have been designed with the virtual discussion board in a central position. Each week, students share their research, articulate their ideas, explain their conclusions, and comment on one another’s progress. Students should envisage the class discussion board as the heart of their online classroom.
  3. Collaborative Learning: Online collaborative learning activities play an important role in MOE courses.  Students become part of online learning teams to investigate challenging problems, share experiences, and provide support and encouragement. Collaboration facilitates efficient learning, high student motivation, effective teamwork, and increased self-confidence.  Students learn from classmates and help them to learn.
  4. Comprehensive Resources and Support:  MOE has assembled a collection of support services and online resources that meet the needs of online students and the virtual classroom.  Student services, technical support, library resources, registration, academic tutoring, and advisement have been developed to meet the needs of all MOE students.
  5. Variety of Online Instructional Experiences:  Based on a clear understanding of self- directed learning, the MOE curriculum uses an online course blueprint to translate familiar educational activities into interesting and appropriate virtual learning experiences.  Discussion boards and collaborative learning provide core instruction and are complemented by online seminars, simulations, presentations, case studies and research projects.
