New e-Pack® Pilot Program
Beginning in the April 2017 term, The University will be piloting a new e-Pack® course format that will feature a richer more interactive learning experience. Learn more about the e-Pack Pilot Program.
At Thomas Edison State University, our online e-Pack® courses are one of many ways to earn credit and use approaches designed specifically with the adult learner in mind.
How e-Pack® Courses Work
e-Pack® courses are online courses designed around study materials and a series of online quizzes. The courses run on a 12-week semester basis and are well-suited for independent learners who prefer a study schedule that does not require assignments or mentor interaction.
Quizzes and the Final Exam
After studying a section of the study materials, students take a short online quiz and receive an immediate score, plus feedback to help strengthen their weak areas. The quiz scores do NOT count towards course results and are only used to help students prepare for the final exam. Students may take each quiz as many times as needed until they are confident that they have learned the material. A particularly flexible feature of e-Pack® courses is that students can study and take the quizzes at their own pace.
Course results are based on a proctored comprehensive final exam taken by the end of the semester. Once a student passes the final exam, they receive credit for the course. Another advantage of e-Pack® courses is that students may schedule their exam before the end of the semester, if they are ready. This allows students to work more rapidly and earn credits in less time.
