WEI is dedicated to delivering comprehensive learning modalities that are flexible to all learners. Our online programs are designed so that adult learners can receive the training they need in a setting that fits their schedule and learning style. Unlike traditional learning systems that would involve traveling away from home, living in a completely unknown city, and struggling in an extremely competitive learning environment...with online education you can take your program or course wherever you are at your pace. Learners will use a computer, tablet or some other device for their learning while connected to the internet to access information or communicate with their instructor and other learners.

We offer both 100% online courses as well as hybrid courses so that our students can receive all of the benefits of a traditional learning environment, but using a course shell classroom. The purpose of a hybrid course is to take advantage of the best features of both face-to-face and online learning.While hybrid classes and distance learning classes both have online elements, there are some distinct differences between the two types of courses. The key difference is that in a hybrid course, students still have in-person contact with their instructor or internship for at least a portion of the class time.

WEI provides both options for students using the TalentLMS learning platform. Take as tour of our learning platform:

These requirements will be indicated in the course description. Minimum technical and software requirements for Online Learning courses:
