How are Cleary’s online courses different from the free open source courses I can access through the Internet?
Massively open online courses or MOOCs typically feature “massive” participation, completion rates are typically very low and the vast majority do not offer an option for academic credit. At Cleary University, we do online “right.” You will benefit from individualized attention from faculty and develop close relationships with fellow students as you interact and create a wide network of professional contacts.
Faculty presence can truly be felt in the online environment: students receive timely and engaging responses to their online discussion posts, which are the heart of the collaborative learning approach. Cleary University’s online teaching is supportive and respectful of every student, and draws out the unique contributions of each. Additionally, students are offered a full college experience with associated access to all student services (i.e. advising, library resources, career services, IT support and disability services).
How do I enroll?
Your organization will notify all employees of Cleary C.E.O. program benefits. You will be invited to participate in an exclusive block pricing tuition model, a new employee benefits program that will provide you with access to online (only) undergraduate and graduate degree programs. You will be eligible for this significant educational benefit regardless of whether or not your employer already provides tuition reimbursement. If your employer does provide tuition reimbursement benefits, the cost to you will be further reduced.
