We Hear You.
We’re all about supporting students and providing new opportunities. With Ashton Online, students learn through live-online lectures, take interactive quizzes, complete assessments, and connect with fellow learners in real-time.
Live-online courses provide new flexibility and opportunities for learning, yet remain academically-rigorous and require the same investment of time and work as a face-to-face course.
Our instructors are industry leaders with years of experience.
Support available through email, chat or phone whenever you need it.
Course schedules consider time differences and busy lifestyles.
We’ve been delivering online education for almost ten years.
All live sessions are recorded and made available right after webinars.
Access all course content on your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
How Does It Work?
Ashton Online utilizes award-winning software to create an interactive experience for students. You’ll have access to a personalized course site, a landing page for all online learning activities and materials, and be guided through your online education by our technical support staff.
We start with group discussion boards, 1 on 1 student-teacher interaction and quizzes. However, our courses focus on live webinar sessions as the primary method of information delivery in an interactive setting. In these webinars, you can ask your instructor questions in real time and chat with your classmates.
Our online courses provide the same academic rigor as those courses delivered in traditional classroom settings. Courses utilize the latest synchronous and asynchronous tools in educational technology.

What are the technical requirements?
All your course updates, reading materials, webinar recordings and assignments are posted on your course website, so you will need regular access to a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
To successfully participate in live webinars you should have a webcam and headset, or a microphone and headphones, as well as high-speed internet access. We recommend using a laptop or desktop computer to attend webinars for the full interactive experience, although there are native apps for iOS, Blackberry and Android.

We currently offer programs and courses in the areas of Immigration Consulting, Financial Services, Human Resources and Home Inspection. We are always working on developing new online courses!
What platform does Ashton Online use?
Our live webinars are delivered through Adobe Connect, an award-winning webinar service that has specialized in transforming the digital classroom.
We use Google Apps for Education to deliver most of our programs and courses. All Ashton Online students receive an email account, personal calendar, storage through Google Drive, access to their course website through Google Sites, assignments and grading through Google Classroom and discussions through Google Groups. We chose Google as our partner because of their commitment to educational development and technological innovation.
What if I need help during my course?
You will have access to a technical support agent throughout your time with Ashton Online. Tech support can help you with lost passwords, assistance with the live webinars, how to access your course website and much more.
Your instructor will be on hand to answer any questions about the course itself through email and group discussions. You will also have a chance to ask questions in the live webinar sessions, and some courses have dedicated office hours for 1 on 1 coaching.
If you have any questions about our courses, how to register, or about online education in general – we want to hear from you!
