The University of Notre Dame, in conjunction with the University Alliance, offers you the opportunity to earn a certificate anytime, anywhere – in your home, at work, or even while you travel. No classroom attendance is ever required.
Through advanced Internet technology, you’ll be immersed in a stimulating online learning environment that facilitates communication and collaboration between you, your fellow classmates and program faculty. There’s never been an easier, more convenient way to balance work, school and family.
Notre Dame’s online classroom is second to none! With dynamic features such as online chat rooms, streaming video, message boards and email, you’ll enjoy rich, real-time interaction no other Internet program can match.
Learning is now as mobile as you are. Enjoy unparalleled portability, watching and learning from your smartphone, iPod or other video-enabled mobile device, as Notre Dame's industry professionals enlighten via streaming MP4 videos and MP3 audio. Of course, you'll still be able to view your online course lectures on your computer over the Web or on CD-ROM.
Whether you have a question about an assignment or need to collaborate with a colleague, a network of support is always available as you work toward your certificate. Connect with participants and instructors through email, discussion boards and faculty-monitored chat rooms. Engage and interact in live sessions featuring world-class professors and whiteboards that help you visualize key points of discussion. From enrollment to program completion, you are never alone. Online learning is a great way to meet, collaborate and network with professionals from across the nation and around the world. Plus, you're sure to find Notre Dame's communities outside the online classroom, through Facebook, LinkedIn and more.
The online classroom is available anytime, anywhere – 24/7, as is an expert IT support staff via phone, email or live chat. To further ensure your success, you'll also be assigned a dedicated online learning program representative who will be with you every step of the way, from initial inquiry to program completion. You will develop a close working relationship with your representative and are encouraged to take advantage of the full range of e-learning services he or she can provide.
