COVID-19: We are currently only offering our Semesters through our Live Virtual Classroom. In-person classes will return once the pandemic is over.
Our Live Classroom Semester programs mirror the experience of attending classes on campus with other students sharing your questions, projects, and knowledge with your instructors and classmates; all from the comfort and safety of your home.
Our Live-Classroom Semesters consist of 14 weekly classes delivered through video conference in our Live-Classroom. Classes are interactive and presented live by our professional faculty, which means you can ask questions and network with your classmates. Semester programs also involve a capstone group project where you work together with other students to put together a plan for a fictitious business or industrial grow operation. Students may also have opportunities to participate in field trips and extra-curricular events.
Semester Programs are ideal for students who prefer an interactive learning environment and who are looking to maximize opportunities to network with our faculty and other students.
About Our Live Virtual Classroom
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.
