Gale Courses supports libraries as educational institutions and gives community members easy access to lifelong learning opportunities including professional development, technology, and personal enrichment courses.
Available 24/7, Gale Courses provides more than 360 six-week long, online programs taught by college instructors. New courses begin each month, and lessons are assigned twice a week, enhanced with images, videos, and games to support varied learning styles. Users will enjoy a self-paced learning environment and engagement with fellow students and instructor through weekly discussion boards.
Recently, the Northern Waters Library Services system—which includes 29 Wisconsin libraries—opened the door to hundreds of virtual classrooms via Gale Courses:
“The nice thing about Gale courses is you can correspond with the instructor outside of the lessons, it’s that interaction with a real person who’s an expert.”— Sue Heskin, director of the Superior Public Library
A huge round of applause to NWLS system for empowering northern Wisconsin to transform lives.
