Online Learning Support

Review & Evaluation
During the COVID-19 pandemic, educators around the world are being asked to help students continue their studies. Educators are working around the clock to meet the challenge to deliver online instruction. We understand that online teaching represents uncharted and untested grounds for many educators, universities, school districts, Ministries of Education, and countries.
TIEC is proud to offer the expertise of online teaching experts from across our network of Texas universities and partner organizations who have built top-ranked online undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
