E-Learning Courses FAQ

Where do I purchase an online course?

Courses will be available for purchase in the Learning Forward Bookstore.

I’ve purchased a course. Now what?

Once you register, you will receive an email confirmation that contains a username and password to access the Learning Forward Classroom, where the course is hosted. When you enter the classroom, you will have access to all of the courses you have purchased through your personal classroom homepage. Just click on the title of the course, and you can begin taking it immediately.

Are grades given? Will I receive a certificate at the end of a course?

You will not receive a traditional grade or score at the end of a course. At the end of each course module, you will be given an assessment which you must pass at a 70% rate to open the next module in your classroom. At the end of the course there will be a final assessment, which, when passed, will generate a certificate of completion that will be emailed directly to you. All participants who complete the program may also apply for Continuing Education Units through Saint Mary's College of California.

Am I required to participate in all course activities?

Assessments at the end of each module will contain questions about all course components - readings, videos, presentations, etc.
