Edsurge | A Pandemic Sales Pitch to International Students: Start Your U.S. Degree Online, At Home.
EdSurge, an award-winning education news organization, featured Shorelight in an article on sustaining higher education during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Shorelight was already running an international distance-instruction program this spring, using its proprietary “Shorelight Live” technology to connect young adults in Qatar’s mandatory national service program with faculty in the U.S. through classes that met virtually in real time. When the pandemic hit, the company seized the opportunity to spin this model up into American Collegiate Live, a suite of introductory courses that offer transferable credits accepted by Shorelight’s partner colleges. It’s designed to teach international students wherever they are, no travel required.”
