Tired of going it alone?
Join an online course!
Whether you're looking for personal or professional development, you don't need to go it alone. Select Learning knows that people learn better when they are enriched by other learners and supported by a facilitator. Therefore Select Learning provides online courses to help you reach your goals.
The components of online courses are video presentations, textbooks, and online discussions guided by a teacher. These courses are designed to inform, clarify, enlighten and influence the mind, build supportive relationships among persons in the study group, and begin a process of integrating the new learning into daily life.
