Welcome to online learning

Boost your knowledge.

Where you want. When you want.

Whether you’re in reslife, admission, finance, development or another boarding school role, eTABS will offer a variety of courses to suit your needs and help you achieve your goals.

Learning Platform

Courses are taught in an online learning management system, which places greater responsibility on the learner than traditional professional development programs.

Classes are conducted asynchronously, so there is no single time each week when participants are required to be online.

Participants will connect and collaborate with each other through several forms of interactive media, including short videos and discussion boards.


Online courses range from 3 to 4 weeks depending on the topic. Participants should commit to spending approximately 3 to 5 hours on the class each week.

Assignments for each week open on Monday morning, and should be completed by the following Sunday evening.

Interaction is most effective when the entire class is working through the current week of each course; participation is self-scheduled, however, and a grace period is offered for catching up on missed course material.
