Thanks to advances in technology, distance learning can provide a classroom-like experience, bringing instructors right into your home on your own schedule. Through our multi-media educational portal, you’ll be able to watch lectures provided by your instructor, download supplemental audio lessons to listen via your own devices, interact with classmates through the online forum, and chat directly with your instructors. Here’s what’s included in distance learning through the Franklin Institute of Wellness:
- online video lessons
- downloadable mp3 lectures
- downloadable worksheets
- formula guides
- other study helps
- assignments for textbook study
- online testing and project evaluation
- interactive environment for interacting with classmates and instructors
Technical Requirements: computer or tablet device, high speed internet access, basic internet skills (such as the ability to view online videos, download and print files, and navigate to websites), a printer for printed files, and a device to play mp3 lectures (this may be your computer with speakers).
Student-Teacher Ratios: To ensure ample one-on-one time in the online learning environment for all students, the Franklin Institute of Wellness limits the student:teacher ratio to a maximum of 30:1 for each online class.
On-Site Opportunities: Our distance-learning courses and certifications are enhanced by the addition of on-site workshops, lab sessions, and research projects. These are completely optional for our distance learning programs and are not required for completion of our Aromatherapy Certification or Diploma of Dietary Supplement Science. (Please note: on-site lab workshops are requirements for our hybrid Aromatherapy Certification program, but not our distance learning Aromatherapy Certification program.) On-site options include weekend chemistry lab workshops, clinical skills residencies in a local medical practice, and week-long European educational tours to learn from worldwide experts in the field.
