Every now and then, a graduating student writes a Review that we believe really captures what Fortress Learning tries do. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and try to explain why we think they are so appropriate.
Geraldine – what did she say?
Fortress Learning has been so supportive throughout all my studies with them. I have now done two courses and have never had cause to worry about anything. The regular contact to make sure I’m ok and to see if I need any assistance with anything also work as a motivational tool to keep me going. They will help your much or as little as you want. I can totally recommend and would not hesitate to do any further studies with them.
Why did this particular testimonial comment get our attention?
In education, relationships are key.. even in online study.
The appeal of online learning is that it’s independent and self-paced. That’s the way some people like it. They want control over their course – in their own time, in their own way.
But, that doesn’t mean these students are isolated; it doesn’t mean they’re alone.
To study with Fortress Learning means you can become part of a supportive community who engage in learning together. We strongly encourage students to reach out if ever they get stuck. But – it’s not all one sided. We reach out, too. We open the door to invite you in and, we also come knocking on your door (metaphorically speaking) to see how you’re traveling and to find out what you need.
Relationships… they’re about giving and receiving.
And, once people feel safe in a relationship, they trust in it. Just like Geraldine.
