The world now knows that online learning for adults is here to stay, a field Atlantic International University has advocated, pioneered and innovated in for the past 22 years. Yet the AIU program is unique and innovative in much deeper, relevant and important aspects. We focus on real world learning, finding solutions to the world’s problems, engaging our students to participate in the generation of opportunities though the sustainable implementation of those solutions. Our andragogic open curriculum designs puts students in control of their program ensuring that it is completely relevant to their goals, interests, industry, and needs.
This freedom and self-determination transform each of our students into a University of One. Technology and over 25 tools afforded to AIU students, such as Virtual Campus, Curriculum Builder, Android/IOS APP, online courses, live webinars, recommended readings, optional assignments, MyAIU, AIU Link Network, the Online Library, Gamification/Events: facilitate autonomous learning via the Virtual Campus and allow for networking and interactions with faculty & staff as well as fellow students worldwide.

Graduating In A Pandemic
At Atlantic International University, we adapted to the online learning system immediately and seamlessly as part of our academic life; and our recent virtual convocation exclaims pride for our graduates who stemmed out of this online learning system for adults.
Students enrolled in all degrees, be it undergraduate, graduate or post graduate level, kept studying and proudly graduated from the Atlantic International University.
The Third Virtual Convocation
From individual interviews and alumni lectures to celebrating the achievements of the graduating body, the process has been exciting thus far.
Perhaps the most interesting development in the virtual convocation is that the university has moved away from just displaying a picture of each of their graduates. Instead, a second screen shares the achievements and goals that the graduate has achieved.
In addition, small videos from friends, families, and teachers have been recorded to make it even more memorable and reiterate the familial culture that the Atlantic International University prides upon.
As widespread vaccinations are expected this year, it is highly likely that the world of education will soon move back to its previous physical nature.
Only time will tell what happens.
We at the Atlantic International University are happy that our spirits did not falter, and our work did not stop amid the pandemic.
As graduates take the stage and new enrollments continue pouring in, we remain excited for what the future brings for us.
Virtual or not, we intend to help our students cherish every bit of it.
