Roots of Success OnlineThe new, online version of Roots of Success allows students to take the course on a computer, tablet, or phone on their own, at their own pace, and without an instructor present. Students can take one or more of the 10 modules and receive a Certificate for each module they complete. The online version includes all 10 modules of the Roots of Success course. The content and student learning objects are the same across all versions of the curriculum.
Students go through each module with an instructor who provides them with information, videos and visuals, activities, scenarios, and situations, while continually posing open-ended questions that require the student to think critically about what they are learning and to apply what they are learning. Students answer the questions by typing their ideas into the computer on the keyboard. The course is structured so that students must complete the content on each page before moving on.

“I found the modules to be fun and interactive. Your lectures made a believer out of me and I plan to educate and pass the word along, letting my family and friends know that our planet and our pollution situation is getting worse by the day. When it comes to the career part of the modules, all of them are very helpful, but the one that caught my attention is the solar panel installation. I would like to be able to learn more about hat particular trade because we are making money and helping the environment at the same time. I am currently incarcerated for a traffic offense, but I plan to make a change for myself and help our environment by joining a local group in my area.”
“When I first found out about the Roots of Success class, I was ready to sign up immediately. I just couldn’t wait to learn new things about the environment and jobs that help out different communities all over the world. I’ve always been interested in environmental activities and the things I can do to help my community become a better place to live in. During the course, I took notes on the green jobs that interest me the most. I feel solar installer and recycling sorter fit me the best because they include hands on work and help out the environment in many different ways. When I get released from jail, I will make sure I inform my friends and family about this wonderful program and all the green jobs that are out there for them. Thank you so much for creating a program like this, it was extremely helpful. I learned a lot from this course; I feel my mind is opened up so much more now.”
