Extended Learning Opportunities

Creating opportunities for individualized, meaningful learning experiences to support our learners in the real world.

What is an ELO?

An Extended Learning Opportunity, or ELO, is a credit-bearing learning experience that takes place outside the traditional classroom setting. An ELO is an opportunity for learners to get academic credit for experiences that are learner-centered, hands-on, and rigorous. An ELO demonstrates growth and achievement, and creates an environment for the application of knowledge.

Is an ELO right for me?

  • Can I commit to doing a project on my own time?
  • Do I have the self motivation to direct my own learning?
  • Am I ready to learn something new?
  • Am I ready to learn how my skills, talents and abilities will prepare me for the real world?
