WORLD GEOGRAPHY Online Courses

Let E-Learning Take You Around the World!

General Policy

Course information:

All courses run in 4 consecutive sections called Expeditions. All fees quoted are for one course (4 Expeditions). Once registered online, course material along with the Travel Code (access key for E-Learning with The Globe in a Nutshell) will be provided online by e-mail within 48 hours. Expedition 1 will begin promptly at the moment the Travel Code is entered. Each Expedition is contained within a four-week time frame based on the activation date. It is recommended that the Travel Code be entered only when the student is ready to initiate a four-week session with a new Expedition. A student may access the current Expedition as many times as is desired during this time period. There will be approximately 5 hours per Expedition of online learning and the student can choose to sign out early from an Expedition once it has been completed. The time length between Expeditions is left to the student's discretion.
