Online Courses

ADLER's online programs are designed to capture the same instruction of a traditional classroom but can be completed wherever you are (you will need a good internet connection to do so). Great care has been taken to ensure high quality content delivery and learning without the use of a lecture hall, where you will move through a welcome and orientation, lectures, video demonstrations, professional practice exercises, and reflections. You will click through one piece at time, uploading assignments as required. Instructional questions are dealt with by a teaching team that marks assignments each week, where you will receive personalized attention and feedback. If you run into any problems, IT support will be right at your fingertips.
