Magna Online Courses are delivered via our web site over the internet on PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones and are available for a number of specific learning outcomes.
Unlike a training video or a webinar, a Magna Course is designed to be taken individually, at the learners pace and convenience. Upon successful completion, the learner receives a printable certificate as an indication that the material has been mastered.
Magna online courses consist of a series of video presentations, activities, readings, checks on learning (quizzes) and a final certificate. The courses are asynchronous, so that individuals are not locked into any time frame to complete a course. Typically a course consists of several modules or lessons, each concluding with a check on learning that can be taken before continuing on to the next module. Transcripts and supplemental materials as well as online resources are also provided.
Each course unit includes supplemental course materials and information on further resources that will continue to enhance understanding of the course content. Registrants have one year from the date of purchase to access & complete the course.
Our courses may be taken on any desktop computer system and mobile devices with the latest internet browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc). The course features easy to use navigation on desktop and mobile devices.
A designated Campus Administrator has the duties of communicating the availability of the course, providing the enrollment key to those who are authorized to take the course, monitoring learner progress (optional), and ordering additional seats as needed. The Campus Administrator must be enrolled in the course. Optionally, the Campus Administrator may perform other functions such as communicating with Magna support staff; and communicating with Magna editors about the groups experience with the course.

You can use any PC, Mac, or mobile device including tablets and smart phones. The courses are best viewed in the latest versions of Internet browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. On tablets and smart phones the courses require the installation of a .pdf reader. On Apple iPad devices, users will be prompted to download the Articulate app from the iTunes store to view the Articulate video files which are included in the course..
Individual purchasers are given an enrollment key from our Customer Service staff upon purchase of a course.
For group purchases, your campus administrator purchases a number of seats and they will provide participants with the enrollment key. Each learner registers individually on the course website. Once the number of purchased seats is reached, no more enrollments are permitted until the campus administrator purchases more seats.
Our self-paced courses may take anywhere from six to fourteen hours to complete, depending on how comfortable you are with online tools and how much time you intend to spend on each course unit.
Each course includes two types of assessment: Checks on Learning and a Final Check on Learning.
Quizzes, or Checks on Learning, are not graded, and do not count toward your final score. You may take a quiz up to three times to help in mastering the course material.
At this time we do not offer Continuing Education Credits for any of our programs.
