OPS Institute - Earn College Credit with your Smart Phone

         Ever wished you could move your classes to specific times to fit your schedule? That’s been possible with online courses, but with OPS Institute, you may even take courses through your smart phone.  Currently only available on Android OS. Other platforms may gain support in the future. The phone courses gives credit to University Courses/

       Each course is an app on Google Play. This allows each course to be reviewed by students and prospective students to read those reviews before committing. There are likely other enrollment and other fees or requirements that we are not aware of. Please contact the schools directly for further detailed information. It is highly recommended that you check the full degree outline before making any purchases with the intent on earning a degree. Although the phone courses are the full courses, Degrees will most likely require off phone courses as well.

        Most prices vary from FREE to $24.95, up to $100 for each class. This is a lot cheaper than prices for traditional college classess. If you were ever interested in online courses, this new ability to take courses through your phone may just add enough of a convenience factor to help you make your decision.
