Students take GOA courses for credit at CCES. GOA course workload and course intensity is equivalent to courses taken on our campus. Unlike many online courses, students are not passive receptors of pre-recorded lectures from their teachers. Instead, students collaborate on challenging and interesting projects with students from around the world. They are also expected to manage their workload and time effectively to support the asynchronous nature of the courses.
First semester courses for the 2018-19 school year include, Medical Problem Solving, Introduction to Investments, Social Psychology, and Applying Philosophy to Global Issues. Semester II courses include Music Theory & Digital Composition, Architecture, Medical Problem Solving, Entrepreneurship in a Global Context, Computer Science I: Computational Thinking, Advocacy, Computer Science II: Game Design and Development, Bioethics and Abnormal Psychology. Students also have the option to take a year-long course for the 2018-19 school year, Arabic Language through Culture.
GOA maintains excellence through rigorous teacher training, building on the best practices and values of leading independent schools - and by ensuring classrooms stay at a small size that fosters strong teacher-student relationships and student-to-student collaboration and interaction. One CCES faculty member is part of the esteemed group of GOA Instructors in 2018-19, offering courses in Introduction to Bioethics and Medical Problem Solving.
With Global Online Academy, teachers and students can share their voice on a global stage, improving learning and enabling the pursuit of individual passions.
