A new type of online course program is allowing students to learn in a new capacity. Students taking competency-based education (CBE) courses have the ability to earn credit quickly for knowledge they already have on the subject matter, as well as engage deeper with the new information they learn during the course. With these courses, students progress through learning objectives as they demonstrate mastery of content at their own pace.
According to our infographic, the most common competency-based field of study are business, nursing, technology and graphic design. To learn more about these courses and how they may be beneficial for you, check out our infographic below.
