Why Choose Online Learning

Welcome To Willis College Online. A Different Way To Learn.

Online learning is broken. The traditional online learning model of sending a student their learning materials and expecting them to complete things alone each week doesn’t work. Students feel alone, not sure if they are doing things right, constantly feel the pressure of feeling behind in their work, and the goal of graduating and finding a career seems far off in the distance. To fix this problem, we have taken an entirely different approach to how online learning is done. Willis College Online is bringing the benefits of learning on-campus right into your home.
