McWeadon is founded on the principle of “learning without boundaries.”  This foundation allows our students to learn without the obstacles of location, access, and learning formats.  

We offer Workshops, courses, and programs.  Our workshops are in person and our other offerings are online with facilitation. 

McWeadon is very sensitive to our student’s busy schedules and expenses for course related textbooks, hardware and software. Our course lecture contents are developed by reviewing several books, articles and consultations with experts in the field. This allows us to require economically viable required textbooks and resources. Our Free Library hosts numerous articles and resources for our courses which helps to offset the financial burden off the students. Our instructors are constantly looking for the most updated relevant learning materials and compiling it into the courses.  We are able to reduce textbook costs.

Our learning environment is an exciting one as we have made learning interactive and meaningful. We want to make sure that the learning interfaces are very simple and easy to use. We never want you the student to ever guess what you need to do. The focus turns from navigation through the course to a focus on the learning. Courses are accessed online using any Internet connection, from anywhere, and at anytime.  During the course you will read, enjoy interactive lectures, engage in discussion forums, and complete assignments with continual instructor guidance and facilitation.
