Learning Model – Live and Interactive!
American Business and Technology University developed a sophisticated, yet user-friendly, online delivery system that enables live interaction between the instructor and the students. ABTU’s model consists of live audio and video lectures led by an instructor and offered at specified times. The instructor conducts the lecture much like a traditional classroom setup: all students in the virtual class are able to participate and to ask questions online, hear the instructor, AND get immediate answers. Students are able to watch a visual presentation while they listen to the instructor’s lecture. American Business and Technology University is a DEAC Accredited Military Friendly Online University
Can’t make the online lecture? Don’t worry! Come to class any time!
