Kaplan University’s programs begin with students—people like yourself—who are seeking an education but, for various reasons, cannot attend a traditional classroom. Kaplan University envisioned that technology could be used to change the way the world thinks about education. They realized that even with the flexibility of providing education for their students on their own time they would still require traditional resources. Therefore, Kaplan University has partnered with UAH Salmon Library at the University of Alabama, Huntsville, to provide library services and research materials. Their students have access to an online discussion board for conversation with peers and professors, online quizzes with immediate feedback, seminars that provide an interactive experience, and web-based field trips where they conduct research and observe real-world activities. read more »
