Indiana University Northwest - Adult Education

Offered through the Center for Urban and Regional Excellence at IU Northwest, the Adult Education online Fundamental courses are informative, fun, and convenient! You can complete any course entirely from your home or office, at any time of the day or night. All courses include expert instructors, many of whom are nationally known authors.

There are two modes of instruction for online Fundamental courses:

  • Instructor-Led: These courses are asynchronous, meaning that there are no set meeting times or live sessions. Once a course begins, the instructor provides students with new lessons on a set schedule over a six-week period. Once lessons are released, students can access the materials at any time. There is also an instructor-moderated discussion board, which allows students to interact with their session cohort. These courses operate on rolling, monthly basis, with four available start dates.
  • Self-Paced: These tutorials are designed for completely independent learning, without instructor moderation or group discussion. After enrolling, students receive all lessons immediately and have three months to access and complete the tutorial. Enrollment is open – students can enroll and start at any time.

Visit the Adult Education webpage to learn more about the variety of professional development and lifelong learning opportunities offered through this program.

Note: The IU Northwest Center for Urban and Regional Excellence offers these courses through its online education partner. Course content is created by our partner instructors. You will not earn academic credit for the courses. A student taking any of the career training courses must determine if these courses meet the requirements for career preparation and/or licensing/certification. If you have questions regarding career requirements, you must consult with your employer, future employer, and/or appropriate licensing/certification agencies.
