CLS Online Learning

Commonwealth Learning Systems has focused on online learning and integrating emerging technologies in STEM education — survival strategies during the global pandemic. Not all online learning will go back into the box as students return to the classroom. Educators now know that some online educational activities can supplement traditional brick and mortar programs. In fact, online education can help “level the playing field” by linking  communities to content experts to stay  “in the loop” on emerging technologies.
