Our course objectives are linked all of the Program Outcomes:
The LPAIFI Online is a self-paced. That means you can enroll and begin when you pay your tuition and you then have two weeks to complete the course. It's a good idea to set weekly goals for yourself to make sure you stay on track to complete the course within six weeks.
No. Books are not included with tuition. Most books are available on Amazon as downloads on a Kindle App or other book reader. Books are typically very reasonably priced and are normally widely available.
There are quizzes and/or essays per course. All quizzes and essays must be successfully completed and submitted by 11:59pm EST on the last day of the course. Certificates of Completion are automatically generated by the course itself when all quizzes and essays have been graded by the course instructor and final points are entered into the grade book.
Yes, yes, and no. Why? Because some of the essay questions are based on the material contained within. Discussion is optional, but if you have time don't miss out on such a great learning experience as watching slideshows and videos. By the same token, Discussion is a great way to meet other people in your class, ask questions about anything that comes to mind, and to engage with your instructor. Networking is power.
Instructors are active in the LPAIFI Online Monday through Friday at least three of the five days. Instructors are not available on weekends. To contact your instructor, use the Course Email Tool in the right hand corner of the course that is located between your account icon and the Discuss icon. Instructors typically respond to student emails within 48 hours.
