OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oaksterdam University, the first and most established cannabis college in the United States, leverages online opportunities to simplify getting a cannabis education. In addition to launching a new Online Indoor Horticulture Program, OU now offers the Friends and Family OU Tuition Grant, which works like a gift card for tuition. With the launch of the online platform, students can now access the most comprehensive indoor cannabis horticulture information from renown OU instructors with a smart device from anywhere in the world.
All online courses have been developed by the cannabis industry's top subject matter experts who are practitioners in their fields. Priced similarly as OU's Indoor Horticulture Seminar ($1,045), the online program offers over 16 hours of presentation material and 35 different lessons based on the latest actionable information and techniques to give students a solid foundation for entering the cannabis industry or expanding personal growth.
OU's online courses are student-centered and use learning resources to facilitate information sharing. All presentations, material, and exams are accessible through the OU Learning Management System, an easy-to-use, mobile-friendly, and password-protected system. Students work at their own pace and will have 180 days in which to complete the coursework, which is organized into multiple modules consisting of overviews, presentations, grow labs, and quizzes. Focused on everything from seed to harvest, OU's coursework begins with federal and state laws and covers necessary topics related to successful law enforcement encounters, constitutional rights, horticulture and business best practices and more. Learning tools range from written material and videos to interactive media to help students master the content. Students can interact with each other, alumni and faculty in OU forums.
Online instructors include Natalie Darves, Joey Ereneta, Jeff Jones, Kyle Kushman, Richard Lee, Big Mike Parker, Robyn Pierce, and Ed Rosenthal as well as several experienced attorneys. There is now finally an option for those who can not travel to Oakland for the best cannabis education; Oaksterdam University will now come to you, wherever you are, even in your underwear.
