About Our Self-Paced Electives

Along with many major institutions, we have refocused our educational services to online and remote learning environments so you don’t need to come to Oaksterdam, OU will come to YOU! This is an excellent way for you to build competency, qualifications, and confidence in your skillset immediately.

The live-classroom is an orchestrated blend of technology designed to provide the best student experience. Students will have access to the online course materials through a sophisticated Learning Management System with Mastery Exercises, Quizzes, and Exams to ensure comprehension.

The live-classroom environment expands upon the asynchronous online programs by also delivering live interactive lectures, demonstrations, and workshops led by our faculty of professional lawyers, cannabis growers, and business owners. Students can ask questions, participate in discussions, break out into working groups, interact with one another, and our Horticulture students can also show the instructors their own garden and plants to receive feedback on their progress!

Our live-environment provides the most comprehensive online cannabis learning experience available anywhere in the world.
