Lessons with Staying Power

Students need strong opportunities to develop both real-world skills and soft skills to remember what they have learned. All new BYU Independent Study courses are now designed with a trifecta of mastery opportunities:

  • Knowledge — subject mastery with integrated learning methods
  • 21st Century Skills — gain skills in the areas of collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking
  • Character Attributes — to become more emotionally resilient and successful

We call these innovations “Knowledge, Skills, and Attributes” or “KSA” for short.

Enriched Student Experience

Lesson Variety

Interactive visuals (e.g., matching games and flashcards) and videos with transcripts help students understand and remember key concepts. Built-in course assignments, games, and other activities make learning fun.

Personalized Learning Options

Some quizzes and exams offer students more flexibility to demonstrate topic mastery, such as through their personal choice of writing an essay, putting together a slide presentation, or creating a multimedia presentation.

Mapped Objectives

Students see a list of detailed learning outcomes, activities, and time estimates for completion of each part of the unit.
