Intuitive: If you can use social media and email, you'll get up to speed with our distance learning system in no time.
Learn on your own time: Yes, there are weekly deadlines. But you can work when it's convenient for you. Got kids? Go online after they're in bed. Work full-time? Study on the weekends. Like to get up in the middle of the night? Go for it. The program's special education courses are available 24/7.
Material that sticks: Because you participate at times of the day that work best for you—and in short snippets if you prefer—you tend to learn material more quickly and effectively.
Collaborate with your peers: The HuskyCT system has all kinds of tools that allow you to interact with other students and faculty, from discussion boards to interactive messaging. You'll not only learn from the professors, but from your colleagues too, many of whom are working professionals in the disability support services field, who will share their real-world experiences.
Organized in modules: Each week, students are presented with a new module, which focuses on a specific topic. Each module follows the same format and includes delineated rubrics, so you'll know exactly how much each assignment or weekly task contributes to your grade.
Accessibility: We want all students to be successful, regardless of their learning strengths and weaknesses. Toward this end, all modules are created on the principles of universal design, ensuring that the information is accessible in a variety of formats to appeal to all types of learners.
