Student Requirements For An Online Degree Program


Successful Online Students

Requirements for a major in LER are identical for both the online and in-person versions. Online learners will not be segregated into a separate cohort. Typical online learners:

Computer Requirements For Online Learning


  • Computer that is not older than 2–3 years. Students are responsible for the viability of their computer (PC or MAC) and the software used to complete assignments.
  • Broadband Connection
  • Reliable internet access
  • Cellphone
  • Headphones with a microphone (USB is best)

Social Media Workshop


In September 2012, the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) was involved in a highly publicized strike. The CTU ultimately was successful in its contract negotiations in large part due to its innovative social media campaign. This campaign was led by the CTU's Social Media and Video Director Kenzo Shibata.
