Online Learning


At Brandeis GPS, our approach to online learning is unique and our courses are designed with you in mind. Our online class sizes are small (typically 20 or fewer students), which provides our students with individualized access and support from their instructors, and an environment that allows for rich interaction with your classmates. 

Our instructors are working professionals, and their online courses feature customized, instructor-created content, so you’re not just learning from a textbook – you’re learning from experts in their field. Our instructors are trained in the latest techniques and tools to maximize your online learning experience. Our online courses are carefully designed, easy to navigate, and highly structured, so you can focus on learning.

Here are a few additional benefits of our online courses:

  • Complete coursework anytime, day or night
  • Interact with faculty trained in online learning techniques
  • Strive for clearly articulated learning objectives
  • Review lectures, discussions, and assignments 24/7
  • Receive regular feedback from accomplished instructors
  • Collaborate with other active professionals
  • Enjoy carefully designed course structures

The tools students need for online learning

All courses within our programs use LATTE, the University's online learning environment. See our technical requirements for more information.

Latte Technical Requirements


A typical online course

In many ways, our online courses resemble traditional, in-person courses except that our standard week begins on Wednesday and ends on Tuesday. On each course LATTE page, you should expect:

  • Course syllabus
  • Weekly course content
  • Assignments, quizzes and exams
  • Checklists and reminders
  • Discussion questions
  • Contact information
  • Virtual office hours

During the Wednesday-Tuesday week, you will:

  • Visit the weekly checklist for reminders
  • View or download materials
  • Post responses to discussion questions
  • Post replies to the posts of others
  • Engage in conversations with the instructor and other students
  • Submit assignments
  • Complete quizzes and exams
  • Retrieve your graded work

For online learning, participation through the course forums is critical. As a result, online participation makes up at least 30% of students’ final grades. The instructor uploads graded work for students, including feedback on participation.


The skills our students use for online learning

Strong reading and writing skills: our courses rely heavily on written material. In addition to weekly readings, course content includes weekly online “lecture notes,” supplemental readings, articles, case studies, and discussions. Students participate in the course through regular, written assignments and discussion posts.

Effective time-management skills: using the syllabus, weekly checklists, the online calendar and an assignments tool, students follow the course schedule and meet weekly assignment expectations. Students commit on average at least nine to 15 hours per week throughout the 10 weeks and log onto the course regularly throughout the week.

Comfort with the technology: students learn to use online learning technology effectively and contact student support for technological help as soon as they encounter a problem.
