Todayâ€™s Class is a web-based educational program delivering interactive coursework to school systems and technical institutions. Todayâ€™s Class programs, supplemental resources, are designed to enhance an instructorâ€™s existing curriculum with self-paces textual content, vivid animation, and interactive exercises. Supplying concepts and theory allows for up to 50% reduction in lecture time, which in turn allows instructors more time for hands-on lab work and in-class demonstrations.
Currently, Todayâ€™s Class offers cosmetology, health science, and automotive programs. The cosmetology program aligns with most statesâ€™ standard cosmetology curricula, providing comprehensive theory and step-by-step methodology. The health science program explores each system of the body and the protocol for vital sign measurement and emergency response. The automotive program touches on seven of the eight core NATEF areas and related technician services.
The newest program by Todayâ€™s Class is agriculture-based and contains: Concepts of Agriscience, Science of Agricultural Animals, Science of Agricultural Plants, Science of Agricultural Environment and Science of Agricultural Mechanization.
Over 5,600 instructors currently manage their classes and students using the Todayâ€™s Class Learning Management System.
Todayâ€™s Class offers more than 55 uniquely interactive courses designed to enhance student learning.
Many attendees know Dr. Rod Boyes, a long-time NASDCTEc supporter and President of the organization.
