Baker College is providing its students with a new learning modality option called Online Live beginning fall 2021.
Online Live provides students a real-time, synchronous remote learning option that includes 16-week synchronous Zoom classes with live video interaction with instructors and classmates, meeting at the same set course times each week.
“We’re so excited to be adding Online Live as an option for our students, as Baker continually strives to keep quality higher education accessible to all,” said Dr. Lesa Louch, president of Baker College Online. “Between our traditional in-person classroom seats across Michigan, the more self-guided Baker Online experience, and now the real-time, remote synchronous option of Online Live, we hope every student can find the type of learning experience and environment that works best for them.”
Online Live is different than the Baker Online option, which offers eight-week classes that are hosted asynchronously, allowing students the flexibility to learn materials, work on projects and engage with class discussion boards at times that are convenient to them.
Baker College still offers an in-person learning modality at campuses in Muskegon, Auburn Hills, Cadillac, Jackson and Owosso, and Royal Oak will be added for the fall 2022 semester. Students will have options to mix and match class modalities.
“The concept of quality in online education can be elusive and complex, and with the pandemic spurring so many new online options in higher education, it’s more important than ever that students can identify trustworthy and competent online programs for their educational needs,” Louch said. “Between our decades of experience and national endorsements from the Online Learning Consortium and the United States Distance Learning Association, I hope students in search of a superior online education know they can find it at Baker College.”
