Is Propero really self-paced? Will I have an instructor?
Yes. Once you enroll in the Propero course, you are supported with an ecosystem of academic advising, on-demand tutoring, and technical support. In addition, the Propero experience uses behavioral triggers to improve the supported nature of the experience. For example, if you sign up for the course and do not log in and complete work within one week, a Propero Student Success Coach will contact you to offer support, help and advice. There are both triggers built around positive work progress (assignments completed with a good grade) as well as when you do not stay on-track, complete assignments in a timely fashion, or are not earning a passing grade.
Is Pearson offering college credit through Propero?
No. Propero allows students to complete courses using Pearson content and student support services, but it is ultimately up to the partner institution to decide which, and how many courses, will be eligible for credit through the American Council on Education credit recommendation program. Institutions reach an agreement with Pearson about the awarding of credits prior to offering Propero to students.
How do I access my Propero courses?
Typically, an academic advisor your school will have referred you into a Propero course for any number of reasons: schedule fit, mastery fit (e.g., you have done prior coursework in the topic and simply need a refresher to earn credit), or a required course is overenrolled and the you need an approved alternative to stay on track for degree completion without seeking credits outside your school. You will be directed to a site where you select your course and then purchase access.
Once you purchase their course, you receive an email with your course credentials and are ready to begin!
