What We Do
TEL Library is a non-profit organization that partners with accredited institutions and training organizations to deliver college-level courses and workforce training at truly affordable prices. We are committed to facilitating equitable access to high-quality, affordable learning in the U.S.
Our all-inclusive program — curriculum, instruction, technology, and support — allows accredited colleges and universities to deliver affordable dual-credit courses and other online programs in their region, creating strong partnerships with local communities and expanding enrollment funnels. Learn how we can help you navigate disruptions caused by COVID-19.
TEL’s dual-credit courses and early college high school programs provide an engaging and affordable pathway for high school students to begin their college journey. We support flexible scheduling, both online and blended instructional delivery, and an enrollment minimum of one student.
The TEL Education Difference
Our lessons are designed to provide a clear context for each course concept, and then move students through the stages of information elaboration, relevance, agency, and mastery. This design allows students to absorb the information more readily and apply it in meaningful ways.
We emphasize peer engagement throughout our courses to help students develop the ability to evaluate their own work and assess the work of their peers. Our rubric-based mastery assignments are powered by Peerceptiv’s research-validated technology.
Focus on Mastery
We help students prepare for professional success by aligning all courses to our TEL Mastery Standards, a framework of key 21st-century skills and competencies. This ensures that students acquire and can demonstrate the skills needed for the modern working world.
Students achieve mastery of course content through reflection and individual ownership. That’s why we encourage students to set goals for their learning and to apply course concepts to their own individual circumstances.
