ALSC Online Courses

Your Colleagues Recommend ALSC Online Courses

ALSC Online EducationIt’s true: ALSC online courses come recommended.

These recommendations don’t just come from anyone, they come from your peers, the people you work with, the people you see at conferences. Those people. They think you’ll like ALSC’s online courses.

Now, the best way for people to share the information is by word-of-mouth. But because word-of-mouth doesn’t travel always travel quickly as the internet, we’re sharing some of the information from the surveys that we complete after each of the online courses. These are real quotes from real learners. So, almost as good as word-of-mouth.

You’ll notice that the information below is from three of our online courses. We’re offering five this semester. Two of them are new which means that if you take the course, you’ll be evaluating them for the first time! Help us spread the word!
