Internet technology allows us to teach people from all over the world without the need for a physical classroom. People with different schedules, living in various time zones, folks who have varied interests, and who live thousands of miles from each other can all be part of the same virtual classroom created online.
It doesn't matter where you are or what your schedule is, you can take part and learn Vedic philosophy from the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule, using the tools we provide.
We utilize educational tools that almost anyone can use. If you can surf the internet and navigate various sites, you'll be able to participate in our eCourses. They are not filled with fancy configurations or hard-to-understand computer tricks, and it is not necessary for users to be present all at the same time because of the virtual classroom.
Online education is also known as distance learning. When all students are present at the same time it's called synchronous learning, but when they are not this is known as non-synchronous learning, or distance learning. Our teachers and instructors are actively involved in using and developing these non-synchronous learning techniques in our development of eCourses so that students from all over the world, regardless of their circumstances, can benefit from this technology.
Our purpose is to assist people in understanding the goal of human life, which is different from animalism. Human life is meant for developing love for God, and all our eCourses are based on exploring literature which pursues that goal. Our instructors are all dedicated and knowledgeable in their field, and competent to assist you in learning whatever eCourse you enroll in.
The main qualification for participants are a computer, an internet connection, proficiency in reading and writing in English, and a willingness to learn.
Our eCourses are not designed as entertainment, although participants have fun using some of the tools. To get the most from a course students must be willing to read the texts, interact with others via the forums, answer simple quizzes, and write short essays.
In this way our eCourses educate participants how to develop their relationship with the Supreme Lord, and how to apply Vedic philosophy in their everyday lives.
