November 30, 2017 – Cypress, CA – The mission of Trident University International (Trident), a pioneer in online education, is to provide its students with an exceptional learning experience. Throughout its nearly 20-year history, it has challenged students with learning opportunities that promote critical thinking and problem solving.
Trident delivers a unique, EdActive™ Learning Approach that actively engages the student with course content. It creates a meaningful learning experience that asks students to consider how content relates to current or future problems they may encounter in the workplace.
The EdActive™ approach is designed to take learning beyond textbooks and tests, by using real world experience to yield a student who is better prepared for today’s workforce demands. Trident’s approach to learning is based on building students’ problem solving and critical thinking skills, promoting clear communication, and engaging them in tackling complex issues.
Trident’s professors come from a variety of backgrounds – academia, the business world, military, and more. The diversity of these experiences has been a key driver in the success of this learning approach.
The EdActive™ Learning Approach, along with flexibility and affordability, make up Trident’s three key differentiators. It is Trident’s unique combination of these three factors, delivered with a commitment to student success which has made Trident stand out in the higher education online learning space. Trident treats students as adults with a learning approach that aims to help them develop marketable skills as they move toward graduation.
