Registration Process Changes for Some LifeLong Learning Classes
To improve technical support for students, WCC’s LifeLong Learning department has changed the registration process for online classes offered by its partner, Education To Go.
Previously, students registered for the non-credit classes at the LifeLong Learning website. Now, they will register directly with the company.
“Ed2go classes are offered at colleges and universities around the world and most students enroll directly with the company, which has worked well,” said Monique James, director of LifeLong Learning. “Registering through ed2go means that non-credit students are now eligible for one-on-one technical assistance 24/7.
“Washtenaw has offered ed2go classes since 2001 and most recently is one of the top 10 schools ed2go partners with, and is consistently one of its top 25. What we’re hoping to do with this change is enhance the student experience.”
Ed2go offers over 250 non-credit classes that run for six weeks, with most costing $99. Their online format provides the convenience of studying at home, the library, a coffee shop, or anywhere else there’s a computer with an Internet connection.
“These classes appeal to people who want to learn something new without the commitment of taking a credit class,” said James. “For example, someone planning on going to graduate school might want to take ed2go’s GRE prep class. Or someone interested in learning how to write grants might take a six-week grant writing course. They have quite an impressive list of non-credit options.”
