1. Learning Carte uses various digital marketing and local/state/national marketing channels to promote instructors and their classes.
2. Learning Carte also invests in collecting reviews and feedback from students/parents and constantly updates the technology platform in order to make the Instructor selection and overall learning experience relatively seamless for students.
3. Learning Carte is building an online community of instructors that can share best practices and tools that can be used in tomorrow’s digital classroom.
We encourage all of our instructors to follow our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages.
