How does it work?
Our college courses take Torah Live learning to a new level. We have created a learning platform that provides long-distance learning for students in college or still in yeshiva/seminary. Each course is broken down into a series of units. Each unit contains videos, online assessments, essay writing and further reading requirements. There is a learning dashboard which will enable you to track your learning and view quiz results throughout the learning process. You can learn at your own pace and the learning dashboard will keep track of where you are in the course. Reviewing is as simple as clicking on the review unit button.
At the end of each course you will be required to take a proctored proficiency exam.
