What Is It Like to Be an Online Student at ACE?
All ACE classes are rooted in forward-thinking, evidence-based instruction that is immediately applicable in your professional life. And with the flexibility of the online format, you can study on your own time and in your own place.
A typical week for an ACE Student involves:
- Watching online video modules
- Tuning into presentation-based course lectures
- Engaging with peers through online discussions
- Diving into content with papers or other assignments
- Taking periodic assessments to demonstrate content mastery
Geared towards an adult learner who wants an accelerated path, our courses are typically offered in 5-week or 10-week formats with a break between terms.
Your success begins at our virtual campus — you’ll have 24/7 access to your virtual classroom, student commons, the library, and student support.
Canvas is the technology that delivers your success in the virtual classroom on any browser or through the Android or iPhone mobile app. With small class sizes, you’ll get quick support from your professor.
The online Student Commons offers a wealth of resources including handbooks, research guides, approved sample dissertations, and step-by-step tutorials that accommodate different learning styles.
