Self-Directed Microsoft Office Courses

How does your self-directed course work? 

The program “Jasperactive” is an online learning platform where all your learning takes place. You will be reading information on a computer screen, following computer prompts, as well as completing practice activities. You will be the person that is responsible for reading and understanding the information as well as helping trouble shoot your questions, using the online tools and materials provided with the class.

To be successful and enjoy taking this type of class, it is important that you have good trouble shooting or problems solving skills as it pertains to computer use.

The great news is that we have designed this course with the added bonus of a weekly a two-hour conference call, just in case you need a little help from a qualified Microsoft office instructor. We want you to be success and these conference calls can be helpful if you get stuck once in a while, but the overall expectation is that you work through the course with little to no instructional help other than what is found in the online learning tool.


All the little details you need to know about taking a self-directed course.
