Learning with Brightspace

One convenient platform to access everything you need, in a proven remote learning format.

Flexibility combined with the right amount of accountability.

Some online diploma programs make it hard to stay on track — by being completely ‘self-led’ or offering unlimited time to complete the course. With Robertson Online and our learning platform Brightspace we offer the same flexibility to learn anywhere at any time, but with the support and course progression you need to stay on track.

One convenient place.

Course progression and goals to keep you engaged.

We know how easy it can be to fall behind in an online course when there is no one to hold you accountable. A “self-led” course can quickly turn into an abandoned course.

Thanks to years of student and instructor feedback, we’ve figured out 4 key factors that help our students stay on track and succeed after enrolling in an online diploma program.

01.

Weekly Course Requirements

New course notes and lectures are released to you on a weekly basis, giving you a manageable number of study hours to commit to each week. This prevents students from feeling overwhelmed as it feels similar to attending an in-classroom program.

02.

No Live Classroom Hours

Study for your diploma while maintaining your current lifestyle. You’ll find your lectures and materials are pre-recorded and available on Brightspace, so you have the flexibility to complete your coursework when it fits your schedule.

03.

Tracking & Reminders

Your instructors will keep track of your progress and make sure you complete your weekly assignments. Your course engagement is scored each week and contributes to your grade.

04.

Student Advisors & Support

Balancing multiple priorities can be difficult. That’s why we have an amazing team of Student Advisors that will check in with you if you fall behind and help you get back on track.
