How it Works
Everywhere you turn, iPads and other tablets are becoming more and more part of the professional workplace environment. Virtually every company in the IT industry, marketing industry, or even the health care industry are integrating tablets into common job functions. That's one reason why Empowered is a "mobile-first" education environment. We've creating an entire university inside an iPad to make your learning experience the best you'll find online.
The iPad Learning Center is a custom developed learning environment for the Apple iPad. With the learning center, your backyard, your living room, the doctor’s office, the airport, or even a park bench all transform into your personal classroom. This mobile learning environment is designed for the busy adult who needs a flexible program to fit into their personal schedule.
Here's a longer demonstration of our unique Empowered App in action:
Non iPad Option:
For those students who choose not to use the iPad, we have a laptop or desktop option. These students will use the "Canvas" learning platform. For a short demonstration of the Canvas option, you can watch the video below:
No matter where or when, you’re never more than a tap away from the learning environment, your coursework, instructors, fellow students and support.
Courses can be accesses while you are offline. So, even on a plane or in remote location, you can continue your studies.
A mobile learning environment that's ready whenever you are. Weekly assignments provide structure to keep you engaged and on-task, while the iPad gives you the freedom and power to make your own schedule and learn anywhere, anytime.
Students save hundreds of dollars by using eBooks on your iPad, rather than traditional text books. In many cases, students have the option of renting book or using their Kindle.
Whether you’re stuck on an assignment at 9 pm at night, or up early posting an answer to a discussion question, you can easily see who in your class is online at any given time. Reach out, connect, learn and continue your academic and career journey with encouragement and support available at all times.
All in One:
Almost everything you need to be successful in your courses is contained in the iPad app. Use Facetime on the iPad to communicate directly to fellow students and instructors. Even get notified about an upcoming assignment, or receive an instructor announcement, directly through the notifications on the iPad.
