Laurus College is changing the world of teaching and learning with a unique approach to both campus & online higher education.
Atascadero, Oxnard, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria & ONLINE, Calif. — Every Laurus student, whether they’re taking classes online or at one of our campuses, is provided a friendly learning environment that includes smaller class sizes and real-time assistance from caring instructors. Students communicate in their classes via a fully interactive, web-based platform that includes a webcam, headset and instant messaging. This gives students the ability to clearly hear their instructor during the lecture / lab while also having the option of posing a question to either the entire class or to just their instructor. Each student also has access to a comprehensive video library, so that they may view a lecture or lab session whenever and as often as they like.
The Laurus system was built with one primary goal: that any student, regardless of his or her educational background, could succeed. Laurus College offers a career-focused learning experience that can help individuals get into their desired industry faster than a traditional program offered at a two or four-year college. Laurus also fosters a real-world training approach that allows students to use the same technology and industry-standard tools found in business today. This is especially important to the majority of students who have typically struggled with traditional learning formats. Laurus students enjoy a form of learning that’s geared towards their needs and learning styles.
Laurus College prides itself on providing training that prepares students for success in career fields that are in demand and where jobs are available. For instance, the U. S. Department of Labor projects “Faster than Average” job growth (20-28%)* for occupations in both the web development and medical records fields. Website resources like odesk.com and elance.com help to illustrate this job growth with thousands of work opportunities posted in the Web Design & Animation industries. In addition to their career-specific training, Laurus College also makes available career services such as portfolio development & mock interviewing to all of its students in an effort to assist them in finding meaningful work.
