How it Works

All courses are designed to allow you to work at your own pace and to set your own schedule.

Most students are able to enroll in courses any day of the year. You’ll be given a completion date based on pre-established stipulations and all course requirements must be completed by that date. There are no other fixed dates in the course, which allows you to work at your own pace.

TEDS courses promise the highest caliber academics, engaging scholarship, and inspired community. In order to maximize the number of contexts where TEDS courses can be taken, our instructional design team has purposefully established an invisible wall between course content and online interaction. All course content can be accessed in offline formats such as CDs, DVDs and downloads. Assignments encourage and require interaction with your course tutor and other students, which takes place in online forums created for each course. Do your course work in your favorite location, even without an Internet connection, and then jump online to post assignments and interact.
