North-West College Extends Learning Outside of the Classroom with e-Learning Resources
Online Tools Enable On-Ground Students to Maximize Education and Growth
WEST COVINA, Calif.—In conjunction with high-quality in-class instruction, North-West College (NWC) has begun incorporating e-learning platforms for students who attend one of the College’s seven campuses. These online tools give students access to videos from instructors, lecture notes, and other course-related content anywhere there is a Wi-Fi connection.
“At North-West College, we are always looking for new ways to harness technology to educate our students for success,” Chief Operating Officer Beylor Meza said. “We realized that we can make learning more productive by taking the conversations and information shared in the classroom and extending them beyond that space.”
Melissa Reyes, Corporate Director of Education and Compliance at NWC, explained that the majority of the College’s students identify themselves as members of the Millennial Generation. “These digital natives want access to everything right away,” she said. “Utilizing these e-learning resources to bring our curriculum into the electronic age is a great way to meet them where they are.”
In addition to accessing course content and other information, students can also use these platforms to interact with their instructors and fellow classmates through shared forums. “These forums add a new dynamic to students’ learning,” Meza said. “It’s a constant challenge to impart the right knowledge and skills these individuals need to do well in their careers. Offering e-learning tools demonstrates North-West College’s commitment to staying on the leading edge of advancements in education delivery.”
